Verse Of Week 38

“If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back. But if you are unsuccessful, take one or two others with you and go back again, so that everything you say may be confirmed by two or three witnesses. If the person still refuses to listen, take your case to the church. Then if he or she won’t accept the church’s decision, treat that person as a pagan or a corrupt tax collector.”

Matthew 22:15-17

Here we have the basic principles for dealing with someone that offends you or who you have a beef with. The last part is what really gets me. Treating someone as a pagan or a corrupt tax collector means loving them, not hating them. Man, it is hard to love people that really tick you off isn’t it?

How To Deal With Difficult People

Dealing with Difficult People

Matthew 18:15-17 has a great process to live by when dealing with the people that offend you. Probably the best thing we can do is to love those difficult people. Romans 12:17-21 goes right against our gut instinct to repay evil for evil by showing our enemies (difficult people) love. We talked about some really good stuff in the High School ministry.

I also gave some practical stuff for students to do when dealing with those difficult individuals. You can check them out in this blog post from Think Simple Now.

Verse Of Week 36

One young man following behind was clothed only in a long linen shirt. When the mob tried to grab him,  he slipped out of his shirt and ran away naked.

Mark 14:51-52 (NLT)

I thought I might share an incident of streaking in the Bible. I can’t tell you how many funny things are in the Bible when you really look for them. Not everyone approves of streaking, but sometimes you have no choice.

False Starts And A Real Beginning

This evening I am thrusting myself into the world of blogging!

I have attempted to start a blog many times in the past year, but none of them really got off the ground. I made plans to keep people up to date on all of my family interactions, the progress of my Jeep Wagoneer project, and even my thoughts on video games. I believe none of them really had a purpose.

High School Feature has a real purpose in my mind. People need to know what is happening in our High School ministry. I want them to hear the stories of what we do on any given Sunday. I want them to hear what is going on in the lives of students. I want them to laugh at the weird and funny stuff we do.

Get ready to experience what I hope to be a cool journey.
