Today's Prayer
God, you know very well what today is. It's Easter...the day we celebrate Jesus and the miracle of the Resurrection. Thank you, Jesus, for eternal life. Thank you for covering my sins with Your blood. I praise You for You are awesome. God, You are all knowing and all powerful and ever present. You are good, all the time. Thank you for your mercy in holding back Your judgment in this world that has become so wicked. Please, give the lost every opportunity to come to You and accept Your precious gift. Help me to reach out to them, to say and do the right things to influence them to come to You, oh Savior and Lord of all. Hallelujah! All praise and honor and glory be unto You. In the precious name of Jesus, my Savior. Amen.


Unprofitable Anger
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1, by Os Hillman
04-20-2014

"Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools." - Ecclesiastes 7:9

Every day of our lives we are placed in situations that engage us with other people, whether it is in the office, our homes, or in public places. Do you recall the last time someone cut you off in traffic, or you were forced to wait in line because someone up front got held up? Perhaps your employer did something that was downright unfair. Anger can result from many circumstances.

A friend once told me that anger is like warning lights on the front of your car dashboard. They signal that there is something going on under the hood, and we should take a look to examine the source of the problem. Anger can be traced to a few sources. First, when we lose control of a circumstance that we have placed certain expectations on and those expectations do not result in our desired outcome, we are tempted to get angry. The source of this type of anger is both fear and protection of personal rights. You see, when we believe we have a right to something, we have not given the Lord permission to allow an outcome different from what we want. If an outcome is different from our expectations, this may stimulate fear.

For instance, if a vendor failed to deliver an important job on time due to something out of his control, you may respond out of anger. Please know that the source of your anger is the fear of what might happen to you or what this might say about your abilities to manage a project. You no longer are in control of the circumstance and this creates fear in you.

The next time you get angry ask the Lord what is the source of that anger? Did the Lord allow that failure to let you see what is "under your hood"? God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind (see 2 Tim. 1:7). Give up your rights to expectations that God never gave you. You will find a new freedom in Christ you never knew you could have.

The Big Book of Job Descriptions for MinistryRecommended Resource

Building an effective team depends on putting the right people in the right place. Every Christian has a place in the ministry of the church. When you clarify each ministry position and spell out the responsibilities of the position beforehand, each person–whether paid or volunteer–can understand what is expected and serve more effectively. Ministry Job Descriptions: leave less room for misunderstanding • clarify responsibilities of ministry positions • reduce the possibility of mistakes attributed to "I didn’t know" • decrease confrontational incidents due to lack of direction or policy • allow Christians to serve more effectively • provide information for recruiting ministry volunteers and staff members • help organize and equip your team, creating a sense of unity • identify which gifts tend to fit which positions.
