This morning I experienced a deep grief as I scrolled through my Facebook timeline. A married man who I treated as a brother in Christ posted a note celebrating the one year anniversary of connecting with a woman not his wife. Instead of celebrating he should be grieving, too.
I am intrigued by the postures people assume when they talk to God. In an earlier article, I detailed six prayer postures we would do well to emulate. As important as these postures are, they serve merely to reflect the posture of our hearts before God.
Cooks in kitchens all across America will find themselves gathering all of the ingredients necessary for their favorite Thanksgiving Day recipes. Many will rely upon the traditional recipes handed down for generations. The biggest challenge is not to forget a key ingredient for that favorite dish. A missing ingredient determines whether diners consume the dish or you place it in the leftover container.
We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.

Reading Charles Spurgeon is always a good activity. Reading Charles Spurgeon’s The Treasury of David is especially a good activity.
Here are ten quotes from The Prince of Preachers from the Psalm 44 section of The Treasury of David.
God hath made us for Himself.
Last night, October 17, 2016, I had the privilege of hearing the noted historian, George Marsden, lecture at Palm Beach Atlantic University on the topic titled, “The Genius of C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity.”
The lecture was based on part of Marsden’s book, C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity: a Biography which was published earlier this year. Doing a biography of a book is an interesting approach. But books like Mere Christianity have had a life all to themselves. So it was a very appropriate approach.
The Scripture is both a glass to show your spots, and a laver to wash them away.
