Opinion. Observation. Application.
BONUS DAY #57
May 13, 2018Posted by on
It has taken me a while to process a conversation from three months ago. Someone I had been doing some humanitarian projects with cut off our partnership with the exclamation “I will NOT have my character questioned.” It was a shocking moment for me, because I was under the impression that my whole reason for existence is to be a “watchman on the gate” (Biblically speaking). It is important for us to point out to each other and be open to each other as to issues of BOTH activity (practice) and motive. My confrontation included that of pride. You won’t be “questioned” because your pride won’t allow it. (I can’t say the confrontation of pride helped the situation). The truth is each of us SHOULD HAVE our character questioned every day. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to refine and purify us. YES–the Holy Spirit is constantly questioning our practice and our motives–questioning our “character.” We need to be open, honest and teachable–not closed and prideful.
Every day is a Bonus Day.
