The Fight for Harmony!
Satan on vacation

Lack of harmony
Bickering over the use of musical instruments
Division negates evangelism
Php. 4:7; Ga. 5:15
Why were verses like this written?
Because of poison
Poisons affect on the body
Greatest cause of atheism- inconsistency
The problem is the poison, not the tongue
9-12 is the inconsistency
Threats to Harmony
False teaching, legalistic spirit, criticism
Areas of pride in ministries
Steps to Harmony
Be flexible, avoid controversy if possible, confront divisive people, respect the leaders
EGO under control
Unity requires humility
It doesn’t matter who gets the credit
Develop a Sense of Humor
Conversation about Lord’s Supper
Disciples bickering in the upper room
Servants are cooperative, EGO’s under control
Be Quick to Forgive
The Day I Forgot the Wedding
I say all that to say
Do you like it when your children fight?
Neither does God like it when we fight?
