That’s the way it isn’t, …


Nuff said!

… or at least it doesn’t seem that way. I don’t hear the really juicy stuff, if there is any, where I fellowship. Of course, as a relatively new member of the Cornerstone body of believers, I’m not privy the controversies that usually plague congregations. Yes, very occasionally—rarely, in fact—I may hear an almost-under the breath comment about someone, but I try to keep my senses and not agree or join in the negativism. Apostle Peter wrote a mouthful about that:

1 Peter 3:8-11 (ESV) Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. 9 Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. 10 For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; 11 let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.

Now, that’s what church-life should look like.

    • I’m glad you understood my message. I often wonder why my own daughters or their hubbies aren’t interested enough to comment on my writings. Oh well, you don’t have to join my pity party.

      • Maybe their lack of comments aren’t evidence of interest. My sister doesn’t comment either- hubs doesn’t follow. I wonder if they are just too close. Or wonder about being judged, or us having expectations about what they should say, who knows. Don’t accept the attack the enemy is throwing at you here. Write what God places upon your heart, say a prayer, hit publish… And know you are making a difference at a pace God wills…

      • WOW! Elizabeth. And you say I have wisdom. I guess that proves that wisdom is far easier to come by when it doesn’t involve situations too close to home. You said a book-full in one paragraph. Thanks!
