A good reminder post on a subject we take for granted, lament when it evades us, and escapes our notice as an expression of God’s sovereignty and goodness . . . . sleep!
John MacArthur is going to be speaking on A Theology of Sleep at T4G10 from Mark 4. That should be interesting.
Worship Leaders! Open your eyes when you lead us! Good post from Bob Kauflin.

Is there a neurological connection between men, pornography and subsequent issues with genunie God honoring intimacy? According to this new work as reviewed by Tim Challies, yes.
While the male brain does predispose men to be drawn to nudity and drawn to images of sexuality, this does not provide an excuse for indulging. To the contrary, it challenges men to be exceedingly careful about what they view and it makes them doubly responsible before God for images they’ve consumed. The implications of the neurological basis for human sexuality call men to purity before God in a whole new way.
Wired for Intimacy is a book we need. With pornography increasingly reaching epidemic proportions, this book helps us understand it at a whole new level. And it calls us to deal with human sexuality in a way that acknowledges all of its dimensions–moral, ethical, psychological, spiritual and physical. I give Wired for Intimacy my highest recommendation.
