If you read the comments on the "Change" article of Wednesday, you will note a couple of volleys with a reader named John. I don't know John's last name so I don't know if I know him. What I want you to see are my article, his comments, and my volleys.
What I want you to note is two men seem to have some differences. Some of the differences could be found to be saying the same things. Others.....not. What little I know about John and what lot I know about myself is we are both alike; frail mere men trying to evaluate the mysteries of God.
Be encouraged to do as we both are. We are trying to fit ourselves into the brilliant schemes of God in the most effective ways. We are likely right on a few things and wrong on others. Probably we would both be surprised at God's point of view.
I appreciate the unknown writer named John because he is simply sharing a slant to something I may be missing. He is no threat and certainly not an enemy. I would assume him to be a believer serious about discipleship. It just isn't ever a matter of who is right. It matters greatly who is receiving the glory....and it is neither one of us.
Keep reaching for God's style!
