Jonathan Howe has a few interesting ones here. I’m skeptical of the last one, though.
It’s a new year, and that means lots of you have made resolutions, set goals, or planned ahead about what you’ll read this year. Of course the hardest part of any resolution or plan is following through. That’s why you should consider Goodreads. It’s not just another social media site; it’s a wonderful tool for any reader to discover new books and mark progress. Here are four features of Goodreads to help you meet your 2015 reading goals.
There is a reason why the Lord said what he said in Luke 10:3. Some people are wolf-ish. They will never accept a minister of the gospel, because they do not love the Lord of the gospel. They join our churches. They even become leaders. But their nature within is wolf-ish – hungry, cunning, attacking.

Every Christian wants a deeper life of prayer in this new year. Who, after the close of one year, looks back over the time in his closet and thinks, “Yeah, I’d better cut back on all the praying this next twelve months”? We all want to grow, to enjoy richer fellowship with God — the question, though, comes down to how we think it will happen. Might it mean that we pray more consistently? Absolutely. Might it mean that we intercede more for others? Most likely. Might it mean that our petitions are more passionate? Maybe, depending on what we mean by passionate praying.

After reading his work for a full year, I came away with a few reflections.
