DEALING WITH ERRANT LEADERS Before we seek to remove leaders, we must learn from David’s respect for the office. When a person confuses the office with the person in charge of it, he has failed in charity and credibility. We must leave justice to God who writes straight in crooked lines. We should not take things into our own hands. God knows when to remove His Anointed Ones, just as He knows when to appoint them. For bad and evil leaders, God will have them removed directly or indirectly through the people or the situation. God has His ways and we must trust Him.

JEALOUSY IS OVERCOME BY FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE How can we overcome jealousy? Love is necessary to overcome jealousy. When we love someone more than we love ourselves, we will no longer be jealous. Love desires what is best for the beloved. True love always sets the other free, even as it seeks to protect the beloved. Finally, those who truly love will not allow jealousy to overcome them. They will seek to promote harmony and facilitate fellowship.

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
