The Mid-Course Correction

"A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup..." (1 Cor.11:28).

When I allow a person to run my boat, if they have never steered one very often, I tell them about those "mid-course corrections..." Unless there is an emergency, the changes of direction ought to be slight. Though there may be a need to adjust one's direction, it is usually just a very small change. A problem that many of us have, though, is assuming that our attitudes are totally acceptable, when in reality, they need a slight change... You know.... A mid-course correction. Like a boat going slightly off course, attitudes have a way of changing without our noticing. Today's verse is referring to one's attitude about the Lord's Supper, but the idea that a man ought to examine himself pertains to literally everything we do in life... That's why periodic self-examinations ------ and they need to be honest examinations ------ are so important. To do the Lord's work both faithfully and effectively may require a few mid-course corrections. Lets go through the week thinking about the importance of attitudes and be more careful about our own. Many congregations are blessed with members who have numerous talents and abilities in the work the Lord has given us. Those talents will not be as productive as they should be if the matter of attitude is not given a priority. Lets be sure that our work will be helped and not hindered by the way we choose to think, and be thankful for the work we can do together.

Have a great day. Do good and give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
