Letters: Do everything ‘as to the Lord’

In view of your editorial regarding how best to present a loving witness in the cultural arena, I might add that, perhaps many of us just don’t have the skill set to go against every issue that is hitting our beliefs as Christians. 

Perhaps, for some, it’s not our job to be on that wall. Partly because we have our families to raise, marriages to work, our job, etc. And there’s a good chance that when we’ve entered the arena of ideas, we come across as pugnacious. 

For folks who don’t have the skill set to be a “cultural warrior,” then I say do everything else, as too the Lord. Do your best to honor God, be a blessing to your spouse, be godly and loving  toward your children, your family, friends, your boss and coworkers. I mean, for some, that’s a handful. 

Allow God to develop you as a saint and see where that goes. That,  and not watching as much  television and sitting on the back porch with your family, might do wonders.
