It is clear from the Bible that we should not be out of balance in spiritual gifts. But is it possible to be out of balance about teaching? I think it is.
A question was raised in a comment on a previous post called Truth Whack-A-Mole. This post is in response to the comment.
When things are not to our liking, it is easy to develop a grumbling spirit. Recently two verses warned me against this; I share them here.
Paul prayed that the Philippians’ love might abound. He did not pray for busyness or programs to abound. Maybe we need to re-think our church life.
I wanted to choose some verses as a point of emphasis in 2012. I chose Philippians 4:4-8. I see 5 thing which begin with R on which to focus this year.
The desperate posts in the great battle often are given to those whose faith is strong enough to weather seemingly unanswered prayer. So says C. S. Lewis in the essay on which this post is based.
