Marshall Segal has a good one for men: “Good brothers are hard to find, and surprisingly easy to squander. While we focus on the many battles before us, and behind us, and within us, we can forget the men we need beside us.”
It’s good to be reminded that the problems we see in today’s church are rarely historically unprecedented.

In short, “Clamp your mouth. Bite your tongue. Unplug the keyboard. Do whatever it takes to refrain from commenting.”
Madelyn Canada: “I’ve never walked these roads to glory before, I’ve not seen what lies beyond the bend, but the one who guides me and holds my right hand was the One that spoke them into existence.”
“Simple earthen vessels. There they are. Wading through laws in Leviticus, I see them. In the details. Amid ritual regulations for priests, Levites, and the people of God.”
We gossip to make ourselves feel better. We gossip to address low thoughts of ourselves by broadcasting even lower thoughts of others. We gossip when our love for others is too low and our love for self is too high.
As odd as it sounds, making your entire Christian life about trying to look like a good Christian is a great way to become a terrible Christian. Or at least a weak and defeated one. —Jared Wilson
