RB just wrote this terrifying little post:
Matthew Henry, in his commentary on Psalm 94, wrote “Thoughts are words to God.” What a terrifying truth. I can often get a rein on my tongue, but my thoughts? To change what I think means to change my own heart toward people.
God, bring our thoughts into alignment with yours, lest the words of our mind offend you or bring dispair to those you would call your inheritance.
Old dead guys are usually more intimidating if you don’t see their pictures.
