I received this email today from someone who apparently read this piece from last December. I think he must have stumbled on the FedEx piece somehow, and got the impression that I was a pastor. He wrote:
Maybe I am wrong, but from you I feel a boast of religion, and in you, a strong spirit of control left frustrated and unsatisfied. I do mean to attack and antagonize this spirit. Starve it sir. Give it nothing to feed on.
To you, humbly I say: Give this all to God, Elder. Seek his spirit and his presence, not religion. Seek his compassion and grace, not tolerance. God did not give you these things to write about Fedex, it’s a pointless waste of time, he did give you his son, and he did give you a ministry to serve…….not to control….
Seek the spirit sir, Prophecy, Hear his voice, Wait for His voice, Wait for His Word……then deliver it dear sir, as you have been chosen to do. Give God a container to fill. Do all of these things sir, and this container will overflow with abundance………then give it away again….
With love and prayers,
I wrote back:
Firstly, I am not a pastor, but a lay person.
Secondly, I am lawyer.
Thirdly, at the time, I was admittedly frustrated by FedEx.
As to the rest of what you have written, I will think and pray on it for reasons probably far beyond what you were thinking when you wrote it. God bless you.
Your brother in Christ,
I’m still thinking about what he wrote. But it does have me thinking.
