Calvin Miller says something in his book “The Empowered Leader” which is so simple and yet spoken more clearly than I have ever really thought about it. He says, “God can only direct the flexible.”
How often do we equate our legalistic (non-flexible) behaviors with being more spiritual – Saying to ourselves, “If I can do this or that or spend this much time serving Him, then I’ll be more spiritual.” Romans 14, it seems pretty clear that the weaker man is the one who is more legalistic. The one who lives in freedom seems to be the stronger.
Just thinking about this stuff this morning.
