This morning I was checking out Logos forum and got me thinking how easily we can take things our of proportion, context and loose perspective of what is important. How much we complaint and complaint about totally irrelevant things, how ungrateful, hurtful and insensitive we can be. I know that I can be as insensitive as the best. 

 

We take for granted what the developers of Bible software are trying to do for us. They are, after all, people, brothers and sisters in Christ are the ones that are working hard to give us, to bless us, we great tools to help us study the Bible better and deeper. 

 

No tools will ever be perfect nor satisfy every user. It is just software. A tool. A mean to an end.

 

I too loose perspective easily. The other day I posted something our frustration and it clearly came out rude. I am sorry and apologized. 

 

So I want to say THANKS for all the Accordance people do and are trying to do for us. I know they are very passionate about Accordance and that is a great thing. It shows when they spend time here listing to their user base here in the forum.

 

Also thanks to all the veteran users that choose to spend their time here to help others learning Accordance. I know that none of you have to but you do and I am very thankful for. 

 

THANKS.

It is very easy in our wold today to have our feathers easily ruffled. I know last night I was at a blessing of our new lectern font and altar. A friend who went with me complained that the service was all standing (except for those unable to who had seats provided. And I even had my nose out of joint when  communion stations were up around the new Altar and no attempt was made to commune the few of us who were unable to climb the steps. But rather than lament the oversight I am just glad we have a nice gentle 6 foot wide ramp into the church.

David, thank you for your example of Christian humility. We all get frustrated from time to time, but it is refreshing to see a brother make a public apology for a public action. God bless you, David.

 

Soli Deo Gloria,

Randy

Thanks Randy.

 

As you have in your signature: Soli Deo Gloria,

 

We are living in a time that we have to step up and really start behaving like Christ's disciples. Not so people think we are great but that through our good works people glorify God. So many things this week brought that home. No more than ever we need to submit, really submit to His Lordship if we want to have a positive and real impact in this world we live and that desperately need Christ. In order to be real to them is has to be real in our lives first. It is so easy for us just to give in and let the flesh reign in our lives and dictate how we behave without considering the many casualties that it will produce.

 

Soli Deo Gloria,
