The Preacher and the Song Leader Conflict!
There was a church where the preacher and the song leader were not getting along. This began to spill over into the worship service. One week the preacher preached on commitment, and how we should dedicate ourselves to service The song leader then led the song, I Shall Not Be Moved.
The next Sunday, the preacher preached on giving and how we should gladly give to the work of the Lord. The song leader then led the song, Jesus Paid It All.
The next Sunday, the preacher preached on gossiping and how we should watch our tongues. The song leader then led the song, I Love To Tell The Story.
The preacher became very disgusted over the situation, and the next Sunday he told the congregation he was considering resigning. The song leader then led the song, Oh, Why Not Tonight.
As it came to pass, the preacher resigned and the next week informed the church that it was Jesus that led him there and it was Jesus that was taking him away. The song leader then led the song, What A Friend We Have in Jesus.
The above may seem humorous on the surface, but jealously is real at times and always destructive. Ive heard of people being jealous of the ability, position, and or privilege of other Christians! May it never be among us!
Preaching the gospel of Christ is an important factor in saving souls (1 Cor. 1:21). Let us always remember that! - via David Riggs.
