Just a Thought – Always Be Prepared …

In the recent issue of Southern Seminary magazine, Al Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (where I was a grad before his time), had an interesting quote in his ‘A Letter from the President’ column. His is a world of debate and theological arguments, but he makes a point that applies to all of us about whether or not controversies can avoided:

We do not get to choose the questions that are asked of us, but we are responsible for our answers.

Kinda falls in line with the scripture that says,

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…” I Peter 3:15 (NIV)

Good food for thought.

Lord, make us ready, keep us close to You so we can be prepared for whatever the question is – today and always.
