Edifier du Jour-Luke 7:31-35 (NASB)
31: "To what then shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32: "They are like children who sit in the market place and call to one another, and they say, 'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not weep.' 33: "For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, 'He has a demon!' 34: "The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' 35: "Yet wisdom is vindicated by all her children."
The world's going to look for things wrong with the church. If we have a more austeer look to our actions and facilities, people will think the church isn't being blessed because of its poverty. If you have a big and pretty church, people will complain that you're waisting money that could be used on the poor. We're saved if we do and saved if we don't. The world's going to find something to she-dog about the church. Just do what God's directing you to do and let the chips fall where they may.
