I want to pay tribute to wonderful people I have known, the wonderful country in which I live, the communities in which I have lived, the churches who have claimed me as their own, the God who sends shivers down my back when I really give him a portion of my time—well, maybe not shivers but tears flow easily in some of those most priceless times.

COMPROMISE ONLY GETS YOU COMPROMISE

What we won’t compromise on in the middle of lots of compromise depends indeed on WHO you follow. My heart because of my father’s refusaL to have any firearms near innocent children makes me passionate about ‘gun control.’ . What is in the WORD cannot be compromised upon. Thank you for blog.
I didn’t receive many likes today on my “compromise” post. Perhaps “gun control” is one of the issues. Thanks for your comment. I remember so much how I hated daddy’s guns. I felt so sorry for those poor rabbits. Then I heard about the rabbit roundups that occurred because of the number of rabbits eating crops Roundups in which the rabbits were chased into the corner of a fence and killed with clubs. Daddy’s guns seemed far less violent. My issue is based on two things. First our Constitution. We have a legal way to change the gun laws. Let it be done by an amendment as other issues have been handled. Second: There is a need for people to be armed as protection from a tyrannical government. Most Christians believe we should put loyalty to God and the Bible before the Constitution or any other man made law. But we sure can allow a lot of interpretations of what God’s law means which allows a lot of compromising even on the Word.
It’s hard to get just two people to agree these days, let alone many people compromising and/or unifying on anything at all. What a crazy, egocentric, and exhausting world we live in!
On real Bible issues such as sanctity of life, I’m quite definite on right and wrong, but I understand the running of a country is not the same as we demand from our family and church. The scripture about “living in peace with all men, as much as is possible” probably means we submit, or compromise, sometimes. Thanks for the feedback.
I think Daniel is the closest example we have in the Bible of how to successfully live and thrive in Christ in our world today. We might all do well to study his life.
Daniel can teach us much about faith, discipline, prayer, and servitude. One of the few men in the Bible to whom nothing negative is charged by God.
Agreed. Not only that, he lived in a society that was way worse than ours is right now and he managed to remain true and strong in the Lord.
True. Good night to my today’s delightful encourager.
