Washington Wisdom #2

March 15, 2008

One of the things I’m appreciating over here at Capitol Hill Baptist is the combination of firm convictions and generous spirit’s. Dare I say: its rare to find the two things coming together!

Getting to the bottom of this, Mark Dever’s advice from a recent e-journal offers great wisdom on dealing with disagreements:

Put it all in perspective. If you’re a Christian, you’re an heir of heaven! God has called you to be a messenger of his gospel more than any other message. And what is your witness? Do people think of you as argumentative or quarrelsome? We want to be known more by what we are for than by what we’re against. And we always want to be for the gospel, and for being reformed by the Word of God. In essentials unity, in non-essentials diversity, in all things love.
