one last thing

5 11 2006

spoke on thursday night at bcf – i was pretty honored and grateful for the opportunity…

the assignment was james 4:11-17 – because it’s such a practical book i decided to begin with what james is hammering away in teh book there – 1.) he’s dealing with the tongue–don’t use it to speak evil toward your brothers and 2.) your time–don’t make elaborate plans – you’re not given tomorrow – it’s like a morning fog – which, by the way, doesn’t last long (‘morning’ gives away the extent).

then, because i’m really trying to move to just a ‘one point’ message – one thing to take away…i wrapped both of those things into one statement – ‘stop playing God’ – james is getting the point across that our time and our tongue are just two of the areas where we so try to remain in control all the time – all the while, playing God!
