A Flip Worth Considering

Blessed are the entitled, for they get their way.
Blessed are the carefree, for they are comfortable.
Blessed are the pushy, for they win.
Blessed are the self-righteous, for they need nothing.
Blessed are the vengeful, for they will be feared.
Blessed are those who don’t get caught, for they look good.
Blessed are the argumentative, for they get in the last word.
Blessed are the winners, for they get their way.

Ray Ortlund, The Gospel, 71.

    1. Yeah. While wandering the halls waiting for my interview, which had been delayed, I found the atrium where the Crossway book table was. The dude was giving it away for the Prayer Is Not a Mark of Healthy Church conference. I flipped through it during the remainder of my wait. Not that I didn’t have a book with me, but that after two hours in mutable circumstances of struggling with the kind of concentration Dawson requires . . . well, a Prayer Is Not a Mark of a Healthy Church publication was easier.
