Work Together

When my daughter, Jean, first learned to use a pencil, she wanted to hold it in her left hand. I didn’t have a problem with her being left-handed, but her grandmother did not think that was the right way. She tried to persuade Jean to use her right hand instead.
Sometimes we think that our way of worshiping God is the only right way. When some Christians worship in a different way, we may criticize them. Or we may disagree with other Christians about how they should dress or act. But we must remember that Christians need to accept each other and work together.
Our Bible verses remind us that we should be “patient and accept each other with love” (verse 2b). Why? Because Christians are “joined together with peace through the Spirit” (verse 3a).
Don’t criticize other Christians and quarrel with them. Work together to bring people to Jesus!
