    The yeast makes a difference in the bread 

    Doctrine isn’t that big of a deal…so says the school of thought from which some of our “tribe-less” brothers and sisters have graduated.

    The whole idea (or should I say bleached out doctrine?) isn’t new, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less wrong.

    When someone says that doctrine is an antiquated and useless topic, they just don’t know what they’re talking about. They might know what they’re saying, but they don’t know what they’re talking about.

    Jesus once told his disciples to, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.” (Matthew 16:6)

    Now, what kind of bread producing substance was Jesus talking about? It was the spiritual kind: “Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” (Matthew 16:12) It’s along the same spiritual idea (only in a positive sense) that Paul had in mind when he told Timothy, “If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.” (1 Timothy 4:6)

    You see, the yeast truly makes a difference in the bread that we spiritually eat; so don’t get sandwiched in the thought that says doctrine is a dirty word.

      What is there beyond the teaching of the Bible? The only thing I can think of is humanism — the exaltation of the human mind and imagination. Humanism, or making man the measure, will never teach anyone to become a better person, learn how to treat others, or anything else. Except, it might be enough to teach someone how to build a bird feeder.

    Prayer and Work 

    “Each day we must work as well as pray for food, since without God we can do nothing and without our effort and collaboration God will do nothing” [Harold Fowler].

    “Too often we claim to be ‘rich, increased in goods and have need of nothing’ when in reality we have to knock at the Father’s door for even a crust of bread” [Harold Fowler].

    That puts Matthew 6:11 into a righteous perspective.
