CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Last time I reminisced about the last 10 years. It was 10 years I was able to experience and Staff Sgt. Jason Dahlke was not. He was killed in action while service in Afghanistan during 2009. Today I want to talk about one of the major lessons I learned since that time.
I have always been “right.” Since I’m right either everyone agrees with me or they are wrong. I got into some family trouble several years ago because of my “I’m right” attitude and it really caused some problems. There were deep wounds and healing was not overnight. It was a gradual process, took a lot of work, and a message to self hit me hard. Thankfully, the storm has been weathered and family relations are better than ever.
Life is not about being right all the time. Sometimes (maybe most of the time) it doesn’t really matter. What matters is listening to the other person(s) and picking the right battles. It reminds me of my faith. There are definitely essentials to the faith, but others are not. It seems to be the non-essentials that cause the problems in Christianity. The division into denominations has mostly been the results of differences over non-essentials, the man made religion. We should concentrate on the one place where Christians all come together – at the foot of the Cross.
Ashley’s beloved dog may be near the end and will be a hard loss after so many years.
