For or against?

Remember the notes in school, "if you like me check yes if not check no?" It seems that we try to make things in black and white. I use to be the poster child for "black and white" view-points. I never saw grey. I sure never saw things the way other people did. Then I noticed something. I always seemed to be at odds with someone. I didn't like that. I decided a few years ago that I was going to stop being against things and start being for things and people! I decided I was going to be positive instead of negative. I was going to see things half full rather than half empty. It changed my life. I am able to see things from a different perspective. There is a major controversy brewing in the SBC. The IMB trustees are trying to change the rules for missionaries. You can read the contovery for yourself at Marty Duren's blog or Wade Burleson's. It seems that some leaders in the SBC have to have something to be against! Why can't we be for something for a change. Instead of boycotting Disney, let's minister to Disney. Instead of calling people who have abortions - murderer's lets love them and show them the mercy and grace of God. Instead of hating people whose lifestyles are different than ours, lets love them into the church and let God change their habits and lifestyles. Lets be "FOR" rather than against! Jesus was pro-people and for rather than against. He was for Peter. He was for the woman caught in adultery. He was for the woman at the well. He was for the theif on the cross. He was for you and for me. He doesn't accept sin and neither should we. But He accepts us just the way we are and when we accept Him and grow in our relationship with Him our lives change. Imagine the difference we could make in the world if "seekers" saw Christians being for rather than against!
