Integrity, Challenges and The Power of the Gospel
As I write this email, I have just finished spending a very challenging week in court on jury duty with a rather contentious case. In doing so, I was again reminded how thankful I am for the integrity of the people around me – my friends in the WMF Family.
I hope I can adequately describe how this challenging week has reminded me of the importance of what we are endeavoring to do at WMF – provide community and fellowship, credentials and oversight, professional development and empowerment.
The court case on which I served as juror showcased the effects a lack of positive influences, character and integrity can produce – personal challenges, divorce, bankruptcy, malice, hatred, accusations of embezzlement, fraud and a great deal of heartache – but we have something better to offer.
We have the answer to the challenges the world around us faces on a daily basis – a relationship with Jesus, and the abundant life he died to give us – righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit – regardless of the circumstances in which we may find ourselves.
I am so thankful to be part of a life-giving organization that promotes Christ and his Kingdom, and especially at this time of year. I pray God’s blessing on you and on everything you set your hand to accomplish.
Wishing all the friends in our World Ministry Fellowship great joy!
