Check out this verse: "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers." Galatians 6:10
I came back to this verse over the past few weeks when hearing of a situation in a family where both consider themselves Christians. One is not doing good at all. And it is so hard to watch because you are not sure what you can do to help.
We should look for opportunities to do good to one another, especially if we belong to the Family of God. Sometimes we who are followers of Jesus treat other followers of Jesus the worst of all. That is wrong!!! What does this verse say "Especially to those who belong to the family of believers". Go the extra mile for those who belong to the family of believers.
I wonder if this is one of the things keeping people from the church. Too many horror stories of Christians treating one another like garbage. The world sees that. What if instead people said "my church family treats me the best" we might make a huge difference in the world.
This is why I love the opportunity to make supper last night for the Lathrop family. Sometimes we miss the opportunities but I know many of ladies make sure we help people out after surgeries and other things. Taking a meal isn't hard but it does show kindness and support at a time when needed. I want Wendy to know her church family will treat her better than anyone else.
So what about you?? How are you doing good especially to those in the family of believers? Let's start raising the level of our doing good to each other.
Jesus Follower, Husband, Father, and Pastor and trying to keep those in the right order....
