Mature Christians are Easily Edified

Today I overheard Chip Stam, a professor at Southern Seminary, quoted in the following way—

“Too often an accurate assessment of myself would reveal that I’m:
Easily annoyed
Easily irritated
Easily impatient
Easily hurt
Easily angered
Easily distracted
Easily arrogant

“But wouldn’t it be great if those who knew me best could honestly say, ‘It is so easy to edify him. It doesn’t take much. It doesn’t need to be the best sermon ever preached or the most excellent song ever composed or the most powerful book ever written or the most theologically eloquent statement ever uttered. Just the simplest truth was enough to refresh his heart in Christ.’”
