Fighting Over Dad
There is nothing to fight over: find wisdom over at Proverbial Thought.
You may remember last year I wrote a series of posts about my puppy dog (the last one found here).
Soon after the New Year, we got another little guy, a little brother for our pup, if you will.
These two have an interesting way of greeting me when I come home:
When I enter the house, they start biting each other.
I could not help but think about how often we see this in churches: we begin arguing with each other, biting each other with our words.
We can get so caught up in our squabbles that we can miss out on our Father greeting us in His house, through His Holy Spirit who regenerates our hearts and pushes us to love and good works.
May we get over ourselves and put on the righteousness of Christ!
1 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, 2 to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. 3 For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. 4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8 The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people.
