The conference delegate’s beatitudes

0 comment

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall meet God.

Blessed are those who are personally informed of previous recommendations and reports: for they will make intelligent contributions.

Blessed are those whose scope transcends localism: for they shall contribute to the total effort of the Church of God.

Blessed are those who foster the brotherhood spirit by cultivating the fellowship of brethren: for they shall be inwardly renewed.

Blessed are the delegates who lift up holy hands for leaders, committees, and the deliberations: for theirs are the promises of God.

Blessed are those who distinguish between principles and personalities and remain objective in their appraisal of the issues: for their wisdom shall be used of the Lord.

Blessed are those who bear personal defeat on the conference floor in love: for they shall truly advance the kingdom of God.

Blessed are those who are genuinely appreciative of the hospitality and services rendered by the local church: for they shall rise up and call others blessed.

This reflection by the late MB Biblical Seminary professor of Old Testament Allen Guenther was published on the cover of the MB Herald, May 25, 1962.
