speaking with contempt

Tim Keller recently posted a brief meditation on the danger of speaking out of our “inner disdain.” We read this article together in staff meeting today and found it particularly compelling and convicting. If you’ve ever found yourself contemptuously yelling (audibly or not) at the idiot person driving in front of you, then something in here might resonate for you too. As Keller writes, “Moses is a man who has forgotten grace, and the sign of it is a sanctimonious spirit along with words of denunciation without humility and compassion.”
