Is that how you experience or participate in the meetings that I listed above? If the Bible is right the great majority of the stuff we are concerned with on a daily basis is kindling. The meetings that focus on how to build people up in Christ or in the Word of God deal with the only two things that are eternal, men’s souls and God’s Word. When the pastor gets up on that stage, when the teacher gets in front of the class, when the leader of the small group opens in prayer, when you sit down at the coffee shop with your friend to talk about the Bible, eternal issues that have eternal consequences are in play.
I have been guilty of taking some of those meetings lightly. I have mailed in some of my participation. That is sin. I was guilty of not considering how to make the most of that time. These meetings are not just important. They are meetings in which God has directed us to participate. Seems to me we should view that as somehow more important than what we do in the meetings at work. Consider.
