There’s an old saying, “lead me, follow me, or get out of my way!”
Here lately, I have been noticing again, people’s propensity toward arguing.
Jesus dealt with it too, just in a different way ….
Father God summed it up for me one day in my Study time with him when he said, “My way is not to argue and fuss over how to do something, or pick apart how people do it.”
The Pharisees were always so worried about details. Quibbling about it. “Is he supposed to be healed on Sunday?” “Is that really godly?” People feel very free to just dive in, and it’s their God given duty to tell us WHAT we should believe in. Many of them, the very same people who defend their own freedom of speech, pounce on others, telling them how wrong they are! It’s amazing! This to them apparently, is helpful somehow?
“Did you know your socks don’t match?” (Helpful hint for today?) Maybe I only have two socks, and these are it!
There are justice obstructers out there, and they quibble over details, all the time.
THEY STOP THE RIVER OF LIFE, from flowing!
These are the sorts Jesus got upset at. I never once saw or heard of him saying “come on boys, I heard someone down the street is about to commit a sin. “Let’s go stop them!” never heard him say there should be a law against this, Never once heard of him saying, “Hey, you are not in church today, YOU SLACKER!” …………
I have never heard of the ministry of arguing (from Him), jumping on people’s cases, or like Doc Lynch recently said on his face book page “getting wrapped around the Axel” over things people say. Think about that one! If someone is aruging and fussing over what we say, instead of listening, or trying to discover maybe why we said it, all they do is stop the vehicle from moving forward. So back to what I said, Lead me, Follow me, Or get out of the way! I’m willing to explain why I believe what I believe, in a peaceful discussion over it!
Anyone who is not this way, who has to holler over the top of you, rant and rave, freak out, call you names, or any of this kind of stuff, is definally NOT a person I want to follow.
I want someone who leads me to Peace, into Righteousness, into Love, and into a deeper understanding of my Heavenly Father.
