Trek to the Manger (DQ18)

Trek to the Manger Ch 18Lately, I’ve been writing home studies for a licensing agency. One of the questions asked of married applicants is: What compromises have you had to make in your marriage?

It makes perfect sense, this question. What better way to gauge the health of a union than finding out what it’s worth to those who’ve invested?

Unity in the church will always be elusive as long as we hold onto the illusion of control.

Better to stand still (do you feel the hum of the Spirit?) and look up (follow the star)! He knows the way, and He has a plan to get us all there (even if it means trekking along at 9 1/2 miles per hour).

On a scale from 1 to 10 (with 1 being “minimal” and 10 being “significant”), how problematic is your inner control freak when it comes to being part of God’s plan?

Feel free to post your number without an explanation. We get it – you don’t want to talk about it. Just let us know you’re here!
