I heard a sad story today.
It was about a church that needed new flooring.
Some of the members wanted a tile floor.
Other members wanted a different type of floor.
A vote was taken and the decision to purchase tile was made.
Many people (about half the church’s membership) who did not want tile installed, stopped attending church there.
Here is the question:
How important is it to have our way?
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and perverse generation,a in which you shine as lights in the world as you hold forth the word of life, in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
