Pastor Jim’s Ponderings


The Silent Treatment


Dear brothers and sisters,


Grace, mercy and peace be yours through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!


A married couple had a quarrel and ended up giving each other the silent treatment.  A week into their mute argument, the man realized he needed his wife’s help.  In order to catch a flight to Chicago for a business meeting, he had to get up at 5 AM.  Not wanting to be the first to break the silence, he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5 AM.”  The next morning the man woke up only to discover his wife was already out of bed, it was 9 AM, and his flight had long since departed.  He was about to find his wife and demand an answer for her failings when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.  He read, “It’s 5 AM.  Wake up.”


We have all at times probably gotten the silent treatment by someone or maybe we have even given the silent treatment to one of our friends or relatives.  The silent treatment can actually come in many different forms.  For instance, rather than confront someone in person about a concern we have, we might write them a letter or send them an e-mail.  This is not always bad but it is usually best to approach others in person after we have taken the “log” out of our own eye.  Also, the silent treatment can take the form of gossip as you and I talk to others about our concern of someone else.  Again it is better to approach the party directly with whom we have a concern.  Or maybe we simply ignore or stay away from the person with whom we have a concern.


I pray that you are not giving the silent treatment to one of your brothers or sisters here at Trinity for God calls us to love one another.


“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”


This is a commandment of Jesus!  He is not asking us to love each other He is telling us to love each other.  As we confront each other lovingly with our concerns, then the loving feelings will come.  Not only will we help our relationships with our brothers and sisters but we will also show those in the Carson Valley that we are a fellowship of Jesus’s disciples.


I love you,


Pastor Jim
