Source of strife.

Some people only want to cause trouble, and they do it by instigating quarrels and causing strife.  Hecklers only want to cause disruption and have no intentions of doing anything to solve the problem.

“If you can’t be part of the solution, don’t be part of the problem,” said a wise pastor during a church meeting.  One of the participants wanted to point out all the problems with the church but didn’t offer any solutions for solving the issues.

Every church has issues because imperfect people fill the seats.  Learning to deal with and overcome the problems that come with groups of people gathered to worship and serve Jesus requires seeking God and finding Biblical solutions, not mocking.

If someone would instead cause quarrels than look for solutions, expelling them from the meeting paves the way for serious discussion to solve the issue.  We can’t control other people’s actions, but we don’t have to tolerate them.

Removing hecklers ends quarreling.  Find peace by eliminating strife.

Lord, forgive us for pointing out problems instead of finding solutions.  Help us advance Your kingdom by seeking You and finding Godly ways to deal with life’s issues.  Let us become more like Jesus as we strive to mimic Him.  IJNIP.
