Arguing Over Doctrines

From that time, Jesus began to preach, and to say, “Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”  Matthew 4:17

Seek Yahweh while he may be found. Call on him while he is near.  Isaiah 55:6

Brothers and sisters often fight. Even in religious communities, we will not see eye to eye. However tempting it may be to try and back up our beliefs with what we understand of the Scriptures, it is not Christlike of us to go down that road. We may feel like it is our burden to right the wrongs in the opinions of others. Yet, we must all remember what we are called to and that is to God. We are called to seek Him above all else. We are called to repent of earthly ways. Arguing is earthly. So, the next time we are tempted to act like quarreling children, let us try to act like children of God who have learned where our attention should lie. Let us draw so close to our Savior that His presence and love shine through in us!    See Titus 3:9
