When it comes to matters of spirituality, everyone has an opinion, some strong ones as well.
We cant all be right.
I wonder sometimes about the balance between spiritualising matters and being pragmatic.
How more churches don’t split apart is beyond me.
“Give me wisdom, strength and vision God. Help me to lead well. “
In the old days the word ‘awesome’ was used much differently to how it is now.
In the old sense it was used to mean “to hold something as serious, as of significance”. It was a serious word, a word meant to invoke feelings of reverence.
As I think about trying to lead people in spiritual matters, I wonder, what the heck am I doing? This is an ‘awesome’ responsibility, even if it is only a small church.
I also wonder about those great spiritual leaders of our day. I dont think half of them know what they are doing, if any of them .
We are all so fragile, our feet are made of clay.
As I looked around our childrens program today, and the room was absolutely packed, I wondered, what the heck are we doing? This semester we started the third day of the program, and it is now bursting at the seams, with families in need of the live and joy Jesus offers.
What an ‘awesome’ responsibility.
I dont want to take it lightly, but neither do I want to think there is really much wisdom in me to make it all work.
