Each Friday our BCC staff links you to the top five biblical counseling and Christian living blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living.

The Hardest Sins to Talk About

Tim Challies notes that:

“One of the most difficult things to do is to lovingly confront another person about sin, or—even harder—about what may have been sin. In his excellent book Side by Side, Ed Welch offers some practical counsel on doing this well.”

Read more about loving confrontation in The Hardest Sins to Talk About.


Brad Hambrick encourages us to stop and ask the question, “What might a struggle with gluttony reveal about us?” Read his reflections on this question in Gluttony: Gospel Reflections for Foodies and Comfort Eaters.
