God used Paul Tripp to protect me from myself, again. It doesn’t really matter what the circumstance was, I was letting a situation dictate a growing scoffing, sneering, dismissive attitude.
Then I read this:
I still need to be rescued from me because as long as sin remains I’ll be drawn to desire, think, say and do what God names as evil.
Quickly followed by this:
It’s my heart that’s the problem. People, locations and situations don’t cause me to sin, they’re where the sin of my heart gets revealed.
