Sermon: Do Not Fight Foolishly
Theme: The source of strength is our relationship with Christ and knowledge of God, and in that way we choose to never enter conflict which cuts us off from that strength.
Purpose: The congregation will reconsider fights and battles that are based upon ego, rather than serving Christ.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 God chose what is weak and despised in the world, let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.
Luke 14:25-35 The cost of discipleship – do not go to build if you do not have the materials to finish.
How do we recognize when we have found ourselves in a “foolish squabble” as opposed to a significant disagreement? In retrospect we come to understand that many of the conflicts and divisions that have taken place among Christians were actually the result of stubbornness and foolish need for self-importance. How do we recognize that when it is happening? What is most important in the life of the Church? How do we keep our focus on what is most important in the Church? How do we keep that focus in our own life?
