You’re Not Quarrelsome … Are You?

As a leader in the Church, I often feel as though I fall short. I am consistently convicted by God’s Word in areas where I simply don’t measure up.

This morning, the Apostle Paul slapped me. Hard. “And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone…” (2 Timothy 2:24 )

I too often have a tendency to be argumentative. Too much knowledge coupled with a competitiveness pushes me in that direction. I can, at times, be quarrelsome.

Yet God’s Word says I shouldn’t be.

The fact of the matter is that nearly every Christian leader I’ve ever talked to said they were unworthy and/or not qualified. Any leader who thinks they are qualified – on their own merit – isn’t.

This is not an excuse to refuse to press forward. God wants us to grow and mature. However, we’ll never reach full perfection this side of eternity.

Don’t give up Christian leader. The Lord knows your inadequacies but has called you anyway.
