Most of the Christians I deal with are honest God-fearing people. Unfortunately, there are a few others who make a pastor’s life hard. Even though many are aware of the scriptures against behaving in such a manner, they’re spoiled to the point that they don’t care much for anyone but themselves. Youth groups are often bullied by a few folks like this, and it happens even more in “big church”. If Christ is truly to be honored in our fellowships, then we need to pay close attention to our attitudes toward one another. We are called to think more of others than of ourselves. The way we honor others in the church says more about how we honor God than we probably know.
“So let us concentrate on the things which make for harmony, and on the growth of our fellowship together.” Rom. 15:19 (Ph)
