God holds us accountable for every word we say, including the careless ones we share over the internet. Jesus said, “But I tell you that men will have to give account on the Day of Judgment for every careless word they have spoken” (Matthew 12:36). This means we better think carefully before we hit post or reply.
I appreciate the thoughtful, biblical and Christ-centered insights of Pastor Tim Keller. I recommend his books, messages and online videos. Here’s something he wrote awhile back that deserves a wide audience.
The child in this picture is NOT one of my grandchildren. But he pretty much captures what a lot of us, older and younger, behave like when we don’t get our way. (And have you noticed, we often DON’T get our way…which is actually good.)
Invest in Eternity
If you’ve been impacted by our resources, we invite you to make a year-end gift before December 31. It’s the generous support of our ministry partners that enables us to continue our eternity-shaping work.
However, we’re here to serve everyone without cost, so please don’t feel obligated to give, but only as the Lord directs. As Jesus said, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8).
