I am running into more stories of Christians taking other Christians to court. I must say that in most cases its involved the breaking of contracts between one corporate and another but both were privately owned by Christians.
At what point do we follow Biblical teaching on the settling of our affairs? When do we go to court or do we even consider court?
It makes sense that if the spirit of God is in us than we should have far superior skill sets and understanding in dealing with these conflicts. Solomon would make the best example of this.
I mean that is our role in heaven is it not? We are going to be in position of authority to judge and if we are going to have this kind of responsibility how is it that we cannot judge even the most trivial of cases?
Not sure how this works, but we are even going to be responsible in the judgement of angels – so how come we cannot take care of matters in this very finite world of ours?
Maybe we need to give our issues to those who are the least esteemed in our community of faith. What a shame to us all – is there no one wise enough to settle these matters? It is our lack of wisdom glaring us in our face when we go to the unbelieving to settle the issues of the believers and by doing so, admit they have more wisdom than we do – double shame.
Can we walk away from 2.5 million dollars when we can’t seem to settle a deal? Maybe we could if we understood that the lawyers will get most of it anyway. However, us making the call gives us the control of doing what God would want us to do.
The biblical adage – “all things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful or “all things are lawful for me,” but I will not be enslaved by anything – takes on a whole new meaning here.
May our hearts staying walking with God even when we know we are right, cannot afford to be wrong or defrauded – somehow all things will work out alright – God always is involved when we ask Him to get involved.
