I heard something at church tonight and I thought I would post about it because I thought it was really good.
The pastor said that we belong to the Body of Chris and when we criticize each other that we are cutting off a part of our body. Like when we criticize someone who isn't as smart or doesn't have a certain gift like we do we are saying that we don't need them and they don't matter. And I guess I've never thought about it that much but it is true. When we put someone down we are saying (whether we realize it or not) that person is useless in the Body of Christ. Plus it really hurts that person more then we even realize. God has called all of us to work together and love one another and support each other. I think we all sometimes forget that and we think that we can just say whatever we want and not effect anyone (read 1 Cor. 12:12-27).
I just felt the need to post this. I just want to encourage all of you to try not to put each other down. I'm guilty of this too, so I'm not trying to get on anyone. I needed to hear this sermom as much as everybody else.
Well, I'm gonna go. I hope ya'll are doing good.
