Don't forget to capitalize the names of Jesus, awesome job on the tweeting though.


Thanks for your comment, Anonymous. You raise an interesting question.

I thought a lot about which words I should captialise when they refer to God. I decided to reserve capitals for personal names and formal titles, but I can definitely understand why you might want to err the other way. I hope it's not too much of a distraction.


The wise men followed the star a found the young child ... Spurgeon reminds us....
“Those who look for Jesus will see him: those who truly see him will worship him: those who worship him will consecrate their substance to him.”


It was very interesting and
I really love the summary.thank you.
