Long winded announcements... loud guitar... dislike of rock music... music not in my language of preference... and the list goes on and on and on... The petty things are what I like to call them.

The things people gripe and complain about. We all hear it and are even guilty of saying it. But sometimes we miss the point of it all. We can end up majoring on the minors and forge the real point. It should all bring glory to Jesus. Sure you may not like rock music but if it can be baptized and given the good news and reach those who haven't heard it, go for it.

If it can be even spoken in a different language to reach the masses who haven't heard the greatest news on earth, what are we to complain about. Let's not miss the point and complain about petty differences and other things especially if it all can reach the great masses and serve a greater purpose.

Let's respect and embrace our differences as diversities and see how it fits into the grander scheme of things.

Especially on this Christmas day!

Mr. Bilson
