A story is told about a church that hosted a birthday celebration for one of its members who had reached the age of 100. One of the newer members of the church approached the guest of honor and said, “You must have seen a lot of changes in the church over the course of your lifetime.”
“Yes”, the old man replied, “And I was against every one of them!”
It has been said that negative people have a problem for every solution. Let’s be sure that we are not among those who oppose every plan that our church leaders try to implement. Let’s take a positive approach toward the changes that our leaders deem necessary in order for the church to prosper and to win more people to Jesus.
“Do everything without grumbling or arguing.”—Philippians 2:14
