Andrée Seu writes about how affairs begin. We need to be alert to the devil’s schemes.

“I personally know of an affair that started when a married woman I know told a married man I know that she had had a dream about him. That was one foot on the banana peel. It could have been nipped in the bud at that point but was not. Each small subsequent decision sealed their fate, and great was the destruction in the final scene.”

Here Doug Wilson reminds us that half of all pastors are below average. Sorry folks. I don’t know if I should be encouraged or discouraged.

“Great sermons will always be in short supply. Even in the case of first-rate preachers, the church occasionally has to settle for third-rate performances. And in the case of second-rate preachers . . . well, let’s just say that there are more of them than any other kind. That’s not a criticism. It’s one of the facts of church life … The world’s supply of top-notch saxophonists is miniscule compared with the army of honkers who live down the street from you — and the same goes for plumbers, professors, and for you as a preacher.”

Who incited David? In one verse Satan incites David and in a parallel verse God incites David. Here Tim Challies tackles the sticky problem.

“God is sovereign over every aspect of human history, and he uses others to accomplish his perfect plans, regardless of whether or not that is their intention.”

Here are the top ten rationalizations about death. Without the truth of the gospel, all one can do is think of the best way to spin the end of life.
