Colson: secure in the truth

Sunday, April 28, 2013
    Commemoration of Peter Chanel, Religious, Missionary in the South Pacific, Martyr, 1841
    Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
    —Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)
    The less secure people are in their beliefs, the more strident they become. Conversely, the more confident people are of the truth, the more grace they exhibit to those who don’t agree. “Tolerance is the natural endowment of true convictions,” wrote Paul Tournier.
    ... Charles W. Colson (1931-2012), The Body, Waco: Word, 1992, p. 102 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 4:29; Ps. 71:15; Matt. 10:18-20; Luke 4:22; 21:14-15; Rom. 14:1; Col. 4:6; 2 Tim. 2:25-26; 1 Pet. 3:15-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, secure my faith and guard my tongue, that I may give a good account of You.
