Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

My sinful nature leads me to jump into any potential argument. The least disagreement with you and I'll pounce on it to correct you. I'm a scrapper, by nature.

Let us, therefore, make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.
Romans 14:19 TNIV

Scrapper, I am. Yet Christ calls me to follow him. And I will! Paul is not throwing aside concern for proper teaching, yet he does urge us in his social teachings in Romans 12-16, to put the same passion and commitment that you scrappers put into arguing, with loving one another, with building up one another, and then we'll really be the Church of Jesus Christ, and Christ-followers. As if, "Dale, you don't have to fight every fight."

"So whatever you believe about these things, keep between yourself and God." (14:22) That gives me much less to say.

Enjoy Life, Enjoy God!
