In a corner ( James 1 v 5 )
I heard someone say as to their Pastor how he boxed himself into a corner, by his attitude and what he had said. Like that Pastor I have been there myself , and it is difficult to get out of it,Winston Churchill's father Lord Randolph was Chancellor of the Exchequer ,he was a very able politician,but he was opposed to certain things in the government,so he sent a letter a letter of resignation ,hoping it would force change,but his letter of resignation was accepted.and that was the end of his political career. Of course there are things we must take a stand on,truth,holiness, but there are things we must be careful with, and not assume that we can force our ideas on others. We would do well to heed the words of Solomon in Proverbs 15 v 22..''Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed''.Now of course we do not want as Charles Bridges says,to be carried away with every person's opinion,But there are mature godly men or women we could go to,and listen prayerfully to what they have to say.
