10 comments on “Paul Becomes Practical

  1. Such great truth! Amazing how we can (try to) justify our “little” actions all the time. The list goes on and on with ‘acceptable’ wrong behavior. I love how you finished with how we are supposed to put others before ourselves. That will cause many of the wrongs being done to not be done.
    Keep up the great study!

  2. I think you did a great job of capturing Paul’s heart in this message. Well said! Too many people think following Christ means having a strict little rule book with specific instructions to follow for every little choice. However, you did an excellent job of illustrating that it’s really about simply putting others first – in our deepest intentions. This simple shift in thinking will then start to shape all of our small daily decisions all on its own! As I said, you illustrated this very well. I really enjoyed reading this and felt the message resonate with me. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I see parents who calmly tell their children they are angry at them for going out into the street, not doing their homework, etc. Then I see parents who yell and scream at their children for the same thing. We must get angry at things so we can correct them. But to yell and scream and hit and call names is not the way to express anger. Those things do not bring about the desired change from deep within. The good kind of change comes about from a changed heart, not artificially obeying in order to get the yelling and hitting to stop.
