Where is the spirit of gentleness?
Let nothing be done through rivalry or through conceit, but in humility, each counting others better than himself. Phi 2:3
Sometimes I wonder if Father God allows a fine line as happened this spring with the Aviv barley search, where it might be taken to be six of one, and half dozen of the other, “testing our hearts” as it were to see how we will respond to someone else’s biblically-based disagreement. If infighting breaks out, I imagine He sighs, and says, “They have a lot more maturing to do.”
Father, teach us Your ways, from Your gentle and lowly heart!
