Today the Wasilla Area Seniors, Inc (WASI) conducts its quarterly business meeting. There will be an agenda, specific topics discussed, votes taken, and adjournment of the meeting. The goal of this meeting is to brief the members on what WASI is doing, its future, and how the membership can be involved.
If past meetings are any indication, our meeting will go smoothly, and our goals will be accomplished. However, I have witnessed too many meetings in other venues that are not so amicable. There is fightings and contentions from the outset. This is not how God wants us to conduct our lives.
The Bible is clear that we are to “Do all things without murmurings and disputings:” (Philippians 2:14) Further, “If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2 Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.” (Philippians 2:1-3)
God even tells us how to make wise decisions. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Let all things be done decently and in order. (1 Corinthians 14:40)
