Fellow Workers for the Truth 3 John
When we partner with those who work for the gospel we become fellow workers for the truth.
Longfellow translated the words of a German poet (Friedrich von Logau) like this:
“Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience stands He waiting, with exactness grinds He all.”
The point is that God’s judgment, though it may not come quickly by our standards, is certain and very exact.
The most common view of morality in our culture is probably the one that says we can do whatever we like as long as we don’t hurt anyone else. This is, of course, accurate as far as it goes. If you are going to engage in some kind of destructive behavior, the rest of us would be happiest if you only harm yourself. But is that the whole story?
