During an adult Sunday school a participant offered their thoughts, but the discussion leader came right behind them with a verbal eraser and wiped out their comment. It’s unfortunate that many teachers and leaders get so focused on their prepared train of thought that they fail to see the Spirit speaking through those others they are leading. If we were in a worldly setting most of us would fight for the right to have our opinion heard. However, following the example of Paul, believers often set aside their own rights, “But we did not use this right. On the contrary, we put up with anything rather than hinder the gospel of Christ” (1 Cor 9:12b NIV).
