Yesterday I read an article by someone disagrees with some of my ideas about church planting (launching large, building the church from the outside in, etc.). He wrote a great article and made some great points that offered alternatives to my views.
I actually wrote him and congratulated him on his analysis while clarifying some of my own positions. We exchanged several emails that were respectful and, I believe, God honoring. It was healthy and productive.
Maybe this is on my mind because I’m doing a teaching series right now on the power of words (Tongue Pierced) or maybe God is trying to remind me to use my words to build up rather than tear down. Either way, I want to remove any hint of denigration from my life.
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” – Psalm 19:14
