Yesterday, I saw a video of a man heaping shame on a public servant. My heart was deeply angered and at the same time saddened. His anger did not allow him to properly convey his message. In direct correlation, his anger also deprived this public servant the opportunity to receive or acknowledge his grievance.
“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshippers meeting together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be were they to become “unity- conscious” and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship. Social religion is perfected when private religion is purified. The body becomes stronger as its members become healthier. The whole church of God gains when the members that compose it begin to seek a better and a higher life.”
