Our Daily bread organization posted this photo about 1 Thessalonians 5:11. Today we unfortunately see more of our friends and family and even strangers tearing us and others down and discouraging others instead of building them up.
We all have our flaws and sins but we are not better than one another. Sure there are things that people can physically do better than someone. But that does not make you better because there is always someone who can do something better than you even if it’s just in one area.
We should always strive to encourage one another and build each other up so we can be saved and share God’s word together. God gave us each gifts some different than others but we are ONE BODY with different functions (gifts) that should be use to share his word, bring Him glory and build one another up. Let’s try for 2018 to stop criticizing others. In love tell them what they are doing wrong as God leads you; but focus on building and encouraging them in the word. We should not be in competition with each other. Let’s not only love with words but in deed and in truth as well. We need unity not division.
Again this photo belongs to our daily bread
