A Destructive Tongue…

Guarding a Christian’s faith is difficult for any age and culture. One of the challenges we face is the use of the tongue. 

James says the tongue is an “unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” Remember, he is writing to Christians.

When spiritual leaders participate in gossip, ridicule, or speaking against brothers and sisters, then we can destroy the faith of others.

We must rise up, guard, protect, and overcome his attacks and keep Christians from destroying each other. Whether through Facebook, texting, face to face, talking to others, or some other means, the use of the tongue in such destructive ways should not only be discouraged, but stopped.

Renewed Leaders…

Retreats provide opportunity for renewal, and it is an amazing  time to share progress, discuss problems, and plan for the future. 

Retreats bring people closer together as brothers and sisters, as well as, fellow workers participating in the greatest work on earth.

This is a great take away lesson for leaders.

The day to day grind of work, shuffling one stack of papers to the next, struggling to resolve problems, and an incredible work schedule will deplete leaders.

Spiritually, we must be renewed in our relationship with God. Such renewal keeps us focused, accountable, and strong in providing help to others.
