If God gives you time

In case you missed it last week, please take some time this weekend to read through C. J. Mahaney's recent postings on modesty. They are worth more of my time than lots of other things I might be doing this weekend!

John MacArthur's website, Grace to You, has now begun hosting a free, weekly expositional study through a book of the Bible. There's an audio message to listen to that will be updated each week. It would be a great way to set aside an extended amount of time each week to learn more about God's word. Dr. MacArthur is a gifted teacher. You'll enjoy it.

Web Freebie: For those of you who drive a lot or just like to listen to books on tape (I don't own a tape myself, aren't I?)...the website,, gives away a free audio book each month. This month's selection is Martin Luther: In His Own Words by Martin Luther.

I thought this one might help explain why, for some, Mother's Day might not go off so well. Funny guy Mark Gungor on the difference between Men's Brains and Women's Brains...

I usually won't put two videos in one posting, but my family is so excited about the upcoming release, May 16th of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian! We also get very excited about anything that Switchfoot does. So, combining the two is this new song with movie clips:

Finally, as we go toward Mother's Day, let's remember that our love for our children and our love for our moms is but a shadow of the love of God. And let's give Him all the praise...

"God, who is the infinite glorious first-being, embraces them with an entire fatherly love. All the love that ever was in any parents towards children, is but as one drop of the infinite ocean of fatherly love that there is in God unto his people."

Jeremiah Burroughs, The Saints’ Happiness, Delivered in Divers Lectures on the Beatitudes. Reprint, Beaver Falls, Pa.: Soli Deo Gloria, 1988, 193–202.
