Our senior pastor came into the room for a pre-arranged talk with all of us high school senior guys. Out of all the applications and biblical wisdom at his disposal, what one topic was on his heart? What advice did he wish to impart above all?
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another... (Col 3: 13). Sometimes I think the biggest stumbling block to living the Christian life exists in our interactions with other Christians.
The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). Being a man after God’s own heart didn't mean David would be shielded from harm, and being a Christian doesn't guarantee us prosperity.
