These short clips (pasted below) are profoundly insightful and quite relevant to me (see my Sept 3 post “Dirty Words” which should really be titled, “My Dirty Heart”). I actually met Paul Tripp briefly a year or two ago. He was speaking at an event, and I got a chance to talk with him for a little bit. The thing that struck me in our short conversation was his humility and kindness in demeanor. He is a PhD, an author of many popular books, and was a keynote speaker at the event, yet he was unpretentious and genuine in taking the time to speak kindly to me- a nobody among a lot of somebodys. Although I can hardly remember the subject of our conversation, our small interaction spoke as much to me as the wonderful teaching he gave during the event because of the way I saw him live the message.
