So you had a bad day

As a pastor, I know that I always need to watch my life and doctrine closely. I'm always being watched and I always have to a give an account to Jesus (not just Capital City). I saw this story today about Joel Osteen (you know, the smiling preacher that you see on T.V. every Sunday that does this cute Bible chant).

Basically, Joel's wife is accused of pushing a stewardess on a flight in 2005. You can read the story here (ht to DennyRadio). Whether she is guilty or not, I don't know. All I know she appeared to be angry enough to warrant a lawsuit.

That is why we must be "above reproach". We must constantly be pushing into Jesus so that when we have "weak" moments, they fall above the reproach line. No matter what, this whole situation could have been avoided and the good news of Jesus is drug through the mud.

May God redeem this situation. . .
