Keller: Truth can always be found in Bible
A few years ago, while being critical of someone’s behavior, my friend Danny Louque said, “Keller, we should just thank God that He took the blinders off of our eyes.”
At that time, I thought that was a message from God, which I needed to hear.
Today, I’m sorry to say that I haven’t made much progress in that area of my life.
The positive news is that I’m still conscious of what the Bible says in Proverbs 15:4, “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.”
Proverbs 18:21 warns, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
That is a reminder to me and to all Christians to only speak the Word of God, which speaks life. Anything negative, in effect, speaks death.
Years ago, Danny got my attention when he told me that the Word of God is a challenge for me to grow in the Grace of God and that I should practice it with everyone I meet and in every situation I encounter.
It never ceases to amaze me that most people, like myself, will recognize character defects in people’s lives, but continually overlook our own.
If I could only remember what God’s Word says about having the Peace of God in Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate of these things.”
While finishing this article, I was thinking that I hope it touches some people.
God interrupted my thoughts and said, “It’s mostly for you.”
