“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 4:4-6
I attended a social get together with a Christian organization. The attendees range from all over the country.
Food and refreshments were served. Live Christian music from the artists was played.
And afterwards there were games like darts, bowling, foosball, and a gigantic Jenga.
While observing the others I came to this conclusion: we may all serve the same God but we don’t share the same values.
It’s little things that are said and things done that define a slight difference in all of us when it comes to Christian beliefs.
This probably prevails in each church as well. I’m not talking doctrine or scriptural interpretation, it’s more in how each of us define right and wrong.
The real rub begins when the values of one offend the values of another to the point of judgment.
My attitude must be one of looking at myself before God and not others. Then I must be a Godly example to others in how He lives in me and I react to them.
Jesus was never shocked at the behavior of others but lived, told, and showed them a more excellent way.
