Do you always get along with your brothers and sisters in Christ?

It’s not a perfect world – not yet anyway. Even so, the closer we draw to Jesus, the closer we will draw to each other. Historically, it is sad to note that the church is often referred to as the only army which shoots its own wounded. This is a jaded stereotypical view of Christianity, but unfortunately it is well earned. Christians are called to take care of their own first and foremost, and to then share that kindness with others. Now this can easily be taken the wrong way, so don’t think I’m saying it’s supposed to be some exclusive club. I’m just saying we need to always be mindful of our family and take care of them. Don’t let a brother or sister languish in pain if you can help them. Don’t let them be hungry or naked. Don’t put them down and prevent them from working. Help them avoid getting into a position of ridicule for their own foolish mistakes.

This was an excerpt from my book Ask James one.
