Woohoo, we made it to Friday! Aren’t you thankful for that?
So first, I don’t quite have Part 3 of Uncertain Life done to post for today. I will keep working on it and try to get it up today. No promises 🙂
Second, I want to clarify a few things from the Struggling With Tough Issues post yesterday. Please be very clear on this one important point. I do not think I am a better Christian than anyone else. Goodness, I am such a sinner and I am perfectly aware of it. I was speaking about how others sometimes seem to put themselves above other Christians because they are living “righteously” by doing xyz and others are not. A long time ago, I was probably one of them. Thinking I was doing the “right” things and how could these other women claim to be Christians and yet, they weren’t doing the “right” things. For the most part, that’s just not my personality. I don’t like to make people feel badly. Seriously, I’d rather hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
I also think God is big enough to love us all where we are at. Maybe we are doing something the “right” way but I know that we all have our sin and we’re all going to get called on it. That’s between you and God as far as I am concerned.
I’m not ready to fully come out with what I am studying and mulling over in my head. I am not done studying it. While somethings that were said on another site ruffled my feathers and made me feel bad, they also made me think hard and start researching a certain topic so I can decide for myself. That’s a good thing. We should be challenged to dig deeper on a regular basis. Learning God’s word is always a good thing.
I know where I stand on most issues but I also want to keep being molded and transformed. If I close my mind and heart off to anyone’s opinion that differs from mine, instead of taking the chance to dig deeper in scripture, then I lose an opportunity to grow.
So let’s ask the tough questions. Let’s think about our responses before we assume what someone is saying or meaning. If we can’t answer without getting mean and nasty, well, we better take that to the Lord because there’s something wrong there.
Have a great weekend friends! If you have a tough question, ask it! I want to hear it. I won’t have the answers but perhaps together we can dig in and find them! I want the meat. I’m ravenous to learn. Are you?
