restingI was listening to a John Piper message on Hebrews 12, titled "The Painful Discipline of Our Heavenly Father," and appreciated this introduction, so I’m sharing it with you.

Ron Paul, Mike Huckabee and my Grandchildren

Ron PaulThis is my fourth and final blog on presidential candidates. If events arise that justify it, I will address political matters in the future. But for now, this is it. Next week I’ll return to normal blogging, whatever that may bring. (Maybe something about Dietrich Bonhoeffer or C. S. Lewis, who I’ve been rereading lately.)

I said I’d comment on Ron Paul, the Texas congressman with libertarian ideals who is running for the Republican nomination.
