Day 353

Today’s Reading – Titus

Titus is a short letter that packs a powerful message that we often over look.

But you should talk in a way that is consistent with sound teaching.
Titus 2:1a CEB 

We shouldn’t sound crazy when we teach the things of God. That would seem to make sense, but apparently some missed this part . . .

Talk about these things. 
Titus 2:15a CEB

These things are faith, hope, love. These things are the things that make living a life worthy of the faith we claim. They are not legalism redone. The Pharisees already showed us that path. Apparently some missed the memo . . .

Avoid stupid controversies
Titus 3:9a CEB

Ooops! We missed this one as well.
How many churches have split over dumb stuff?
How many denominations split and divided over the non-essentials?

We still have time to get it right.

Perhaps as we approach the end of our journey reading the Bible this year, we need to commit to reading it all over again in 2018.

Maybe we missed something else


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.

One thought on “Day 353

  1. Pastor Rodney, you are right—I KNOW I missed a lot of things—I might commit to another year of reading through the Bible—it is time I read a Bible for Natalie this coming year! I have read a bible in past years for each of my children, their mates and the grandkids—this coming year is Natalie’s turn—thank you for your blogs each day—I have gotten many challenges from them as I read this year! MERRY CHRISTMAS! 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🤶🤶🤶
