Today is Tuesday. I got a lot done yesterday and it was a blessing to see much accomplished in planning and organizing future activities, programs, etc. God has been good to us. It was a beautiful sunny and warm day as well. Praise the LORD! Here is a thought for today:
AVOID DISCORD Prov. 6:12-19. Verse 12 says a naughty person... soweth discord (vs.14). We may think that it is good for someone to "challenge" authority, but not God. God wants us to submit to all authority. Discord is a cord not hit in harmony! Not going along with the direction leadership is going. As a pastor, I've seen that first hand over the years and the end is not good for that person. Verses 16 through 19 tell us that there are seven things that God hates, and the last one: "and he that soweth discord among brethren." All of us have questions and concerns, but take them to the authority and get answers. Leaders have reasons and answers for why and how they do things. When you hear their reasoning, you will probably agree with them as well. They just don't have the time, or ability to explain "why" in a public venue, especially a church service when time is so precious. Be the one who in in harmony with God's program and you will reap the benefits of it. By all means, avoid discord!
Hope you have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
