Sermon Notes

It’s amazing how people can overcome the largest problems and trip over minor tribulations. Although these problems are small in size, they have the potential to do great harm. In relationships, these minor tribulations can shatter lives.

How many relationships have been broken because of a minor, and often foolish, problem?

An untrue rumor, a miscommunication, a misperception, and someone’s immaturity are minor problems that have the potential to destroy our relationships. We are all immature to one level or another. But ironically, we can overcome the biggest battle, but die climbing the smallest hill.

To be sure, it takes a certain amount of tension for a relationship or a church to prosper and grow, it takes pressure for relationships to be strengthened, but sometimes that tension can boil over and small hills become killing fields and lives become more broken…

“Therefore, we do not lose heart…For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).

Learning how to change mistakes into miracles can affect our entire life. We need to realize how to take care of our wounds by ourselves because we cannot gain wisdom by allowing someone else to do our homework for us. If we do, we are shortchanging ourselves and undermining what God has planned for us to experience…….
