All Puffed Up!


“The majority of pufferfish species are  toxic and some are among the most poisonous vertebrates in the world.”  Wikipedia

We all possess knowledge. But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 1 Corinthians 8:1

This cute but deadly guy was hanging in the gift shop yesterday. We all act a bit like him at times. We think by verbally getting the better of others and proving how smart we are we are making a big splash. But our prickly nature instead of helping anyone it pokes and them injecting the poison of our pride.

But instead of ending up a decoration on some gift shop ceiling we could choose to be like the gentle giant that swallowed Jonah. That mighty fish which could have killed Jonah, instead carried him back to the plan which God had intended all along! What kind of fish do you want to be today?!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
