I've got some links that I want to point you to today. Why? Because these are very worth your time to read. In fact, you're better to read these than my blog!
1. Thom Rainer on Things Pastors Wish Their Congregations Knew. He's right about these. There's days that I would like to run this in the church bulletin.
2. John Piper on Questions to Ask When Preparing for Marriage. Marriage is not just about whether you like each other or you both look good. It's a long-haul thing, with good days, bad days, and mediocre days. It's exciting at times, and dull as a box of rocks others. (I even have a box of rocks) Good questions to consider.
3. Emil Turner.
There's others, but I'd recommend you spend time on these today!
