God isn’t looking for strong people. He wants disciples weak enough to lean on his strength, not our own.

This week’s Tuesday linkfest is dedicated to the proliferating yet still under-reported major scandals of the Obama administration. The misdeeds are breathtaking both in scope and sheer number.
