Titus 3:8-10 (The Message) “I want you to put your foot down. Take a firm stand on these matters so that those who have put their trust in God will concentrate on the essentials that are good for everyone. Stay away from mindless, pointless quarrelling over genealogies and fine print in the law code. That gets you nowhere.”
Leader, I bless you with freedom from conceit and self-centredness. I bless you with living large – which, by implication, involves other people and their needs. I bless you with the wisdom you need to make decisions that multiply blessings to everyone in your sphere of influence and not only a privileged few. I bless you with identifying and distancing yourself from opinions that seek to manipulate your choices and from small talk that tries to divert your eyes from the real goal and guide you into shadow missions. I bless you with loving the light in all your deliberations, thereby bringing honour to God who will reward you at the right time.
