Have nothing more to do with them

In Church, Scripture on May 1, 2016 at 10:22 am

Church leaders need to take notice here.

“As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him” Titus 3:10

Too many churches just let it be. They sacrifice church health, discipleship, and the safety of the rest of the flock for these wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Church leaders, learn to discipline as well as feed!

We therefore discover God’s truth by reading God’s Word and by reading God’s world through the lens of God’s Word.

Notes from the Daily Reading

Psalm 93:4

God is mightier than the seeming chaos of our lives.  When things are falling apart, trust Him and remember that He is still in control.

2 Kings 2:23-24

The punishment here is not simply because a group of boys teased Eljisha for being  bald.  Rather they were mocking a prophet of God which was tantamount to mocking God himself.  Two other items must also be noted: 1) Bethel was the center of Israel’s apostasy.  As such these boys had no respect for God or his prophets. 2) The passage says “some small boys”.  These may not have been young men, but they were old enough to be allowed to wander outside the city walls.  There were also at least forty-two of them.  That’s not what I call “some”.  That’s a large number.  So, basically, there was a gang of boys old enough to be out on their own.  These posed a physical thread to not only Elisha, but other travelers as well.
