Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”c Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky – Philippians 2:14-15 (NIV)
Imagine if you would a place of sanctified bliss where the children of God lived without fault and without grumbling or arguing. Paul painted the picture that such a state of being for the children of God would make room for them to shine like stars in the sky. That’s a beautiful picture if you can capture a glimpse of it in your mind.
Now try it on for size.
Let the Lord use you to end disputes, bickering, and complaining, even petty arguments. How? Just don’t do anything related to those actions. Take all of your actions without giving cause for such reactions to arise. Make team members really feel like part of the team. Adjust your attitude about all things related to the activity prior to taking any action. Pray for God to cleanse you and purify your spirit as you go into the work that He has set aside for you to accomplish in His name.
Do it like that a live as a child of God, blameless and pure. . . without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Do it so that no one can say that you have left a bad mark on God’s name. Do it and do it without any shame on you or God the Most High.
