Political Debates
Do you plan to attend any of the political debates planned throughout the county in the coming weeks?

 

By: Curtis Schofield, Spiritual Insight

 

Leonard Sweet uses a Joe Myers’ story to illustrate that everyone who wants to fully contribute needs a helper. Joe’s wife, Sara, handed him back an essay she had edited for him. Instead of being thankful for her help, all he could see was red. There were red marks on nearly every page indicating that she was suggesting some attention be given to some wording. To Joe very page seemed to be dripping in blood. As he tried to find one pure white page, she said these words: “Joe, this is fantastic! This is one of the best things I have ever read! This is going to change people’s lives.”

“You’re kidding, you hate it.”    

“No, I love it.

“But look at all the red. You hate it.”

“Joe, I love you. I just want you to get your ideas out as powerfully as you can. Every time you see red on the page, I want you to hear me saying to you, ‘Joe, I love you, and I want the whole world to read this book.’”*

Biblical Insight:  Jesus said, “The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” (John 14:26)
