I really ticks me off that people in the church say they want to "serve the Lord" but then spend most of their time belly aching about the way that we "who direct the affairs of the assembly" (1 Tim 5.17) try to do our job. Now don't get me wrong- I have never claimed infallability- but I am available! Many of God's uncooperative kids don't care enough to make a call to tell you what they think. (Maybe they don't think!) But do you think that stops them from complaining? NO WAY! If you ask them to do the task they volunteered for when they signed on they look at you like your spitting when you talk! The real problem is they don't want to take orders from someone- well guess what?- everyone takes orders from somebody and these malcontents are no different from anyone else! If they would ask (but they don't) their questions could be answered and maybe they could learn how to Serve the Lord with Gladness! (Ps 100.2) Or maybe their suggestion would benefit the rest of the brethren in the church. But they would rather sit and stew in their own damned rebellion. (1 Sam 15.23) No wonder we are embarrassed when our friends visit the church and see the slip-shod manner in which some of these people serve Christ! The joy is gone, the ideas are half baked, thier giving is stingy, and whatever blessing God could give them for their sacrifice is discounted because there is no spirit of cooperation, instead- only foot draggers, tongue waggers and back stabbers.
If we want to make a difference we had better learn how to serve without complaint (Phil 2.14)
