Do you ever want to scream at the top of your lungs to the church, “I’m older, but I’m not dead. Use me for more than a door greeter?” Or, then again, it may be just me. 🙂

Seriously…is that something you have encountered? I have not seen that. Only ever really been in one church, though.

However circumstances may be used of God to help form your character.

Hello friend. I totally agree with that and can testify to it in my own life
Specifically here I am hoping the point that we don’t ever need to vast aspersions on another because of their position or circumstances . Much like the rich and poor men entering that church in the book of James.
Even more specifically I am thinking of those whom we judge as somehow less worthy because they are poor or some such thing

I suppose we forget who we are responsible to, we all answer to God who will judge us all fairly. While we may not always agree, one with the other, we don’t ultimately answer to each other, we answer to God. With God their is no favoritism.

Good thing we don’t account to one another in that sense of the word huh?
November 19, 2016 at 15:18
Heh heh, we’re accountable to each other in a different way, but not in the sense if judgement, we can judge actions and external activity, but only God sees the motivation. Wee can warn and turn away from what we feel is wrong, and in a proper manner to warn others when we see danger, perhaps in admonish mentioned. In the ultimate sense though, we are subject to God’s judgement, He is the final Judge.

Exactly! We should warn, exhort, and even rebuke one another when it is appropriate.

Our character isn’t determined by our circumstances but often it is revealed by them.

That’s a really valid point Clyde. Very valid. Thank you.

It certainly was true of my Lord,Clyde; Matt 8:27 And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” His character was revealed as God, omnipotent Lord, revealed by the circumstances of the wind and sea obeying Him. A proof of your statement Clyde.
