This past Sunday night, I was able to take our three boys to the KC Chiefs game against the Tennessee Titans.

We won! (Well not me and the boys, but our team 😊).

It was a blast watching paratroopers land on the field for Military Appreciation Night (We are grateful for all who serve our country)…cheering with thousands of others in a sea of red…and seeing our favorite player make a game-changing catch 😊!!!

During the 4th quarter, we were intent on the game. I had my arms wrapped around Ian to keep warm and Isaiah and Dallas were next to me….

All of a sudden, a woman from the row above crashed into Dallas and he was thrown over the row to the ground….time seemed to slow way down….my mind was processing how there was a woman laying at my feet and Dallas was smashed into the seats in front of us….

Within seconds, a few of us were able to help everyone back up…and although shaken, everyone was ok.

The woman it appeared had consumed a few to many drinks and lost her balance. She felt terrible about it and apologized profusely to Dallas. After some initial frustration towards the woman for being irresponsible, I told her it was ok.

Can you imagine if she had started blaming Dallas for being in her way when she fell over the seats?

Seems outlandish….or does it?

Too often, I do something to cause conflict and instead of admitting my fault, I attempt to justify my faults.

This Sunday, we take on Part 2 of James 4 in our sermon series, “Faith that Works.” We will study James 4:11-17 and discover that conflict is fueled when we prioritize ourselves and justify our faults.

There is much more to cover in these verses, I sure hope to see you at 8:00, 9:15 (Full KidCity available), or 10:45 am, or you can watch the Livestream on YouTube (Like and Subscribe) or Facebook at 10:45 am. Additionally, we are also publishing our sermons on Spotify.
