Gathering for a Solution

Do we as a chuch community work on coming together or turning against one another?


Numbers 20:2

God’s people were being led by God’s messengers. Along the way they faced a challenge. Rather than gathering to ask for guidance they came together to complain to the leadership. The trying times showed their untrusting hearts.

Do we also turn against our church family when we face problems? Do we place blame on others for matters that aren’t their fault? Why is our instinct to criticize and divide instead of coming together before God for a solution.

When we face a challenge let us work with our church family to come together in prayer. To confront things as a community. Let us seek to gather and not scatter. God is leading all of us to move past any challenge.

Let us consider what problems we face where we are blaming ourselves. Why is our reaction to be critical? Let’s work on coming to God with our issues. To ask for guidance. Let us place our hope on God. Not putting blame on others.
