What style of music do you have? What’s your worship like? Why do you play so loud? Why don’t you…Why are you…What about…
Have you ever run into these questions? Better yet, have you asked these questions? If you are part of the latter group, which I of course am, have you asked it directly to the leader that presides over what you are questioning. Have you done that or are you the type that asks everyone else about it?
“Hey Andrew! What do you think about the new…” “Hey Nici, how have you been liking the…I think they should just…” You fill in the blanks here, as I’m sure you get my drift. All of us at times are amateurs with a professional opinion of something. This is especially true when things have changed.
I have a few suggestions though:
1. If it’s about me- Say it to me. No need to ask someone else, tell someone else, especially if they aren’t even involved with the area you have an issue with. I’m easy going, so if you have a thought, suggestion, or criticism, please bring ’em on!
2. Remember: It’s not about you or me- Since it’s not about us, then who is it about. let’s first keep it about bringing glory to God. Second, let’s remember that it is usually being done for a purpose.
3. Please say it- Remember when your teacher would say there are no stupid questions. You may not be the only one with a question, or especially with that question. Get yourself an answer.
Let’s get some guts, grow a pair, and talk about things. My moto for many things: I’d rather let it out and feel the shame, than hold it in and feel the pain.
