Last night I tweeted:
Paul wasn't afraid to cause people pain in his labor of love for them (2Cor2:1ff). I want people like this around me, & to be one for others.
Immediately after writing it, I listened to this message from Matt Chandler delivered recently at Southern Seminary (if you're reading this in a RSS reader you may need to click through to the Redemption Groanings site to view the video):
Thank you, Matt Chandler. I probably will never meet you this side of the resurrection, but I am grateful for your willingness to afflict pain for the sake of loving Jesus and others. I was cut to the heart, and felt exceedingly loved.
