The Body

First inclination: to clam up, like a sea anemone. Mind my own business, just stay out of it. That’s peaceful, isn’t it? Greet ’em on Sunday. Smile. Hope they keep coming, hope they’re doing well.

Lord, no! We’re a brotherhood, a body! If one part of the body struggles with another part, struggles with itself, it hurts the rest of the body. It needs to be mended, made better, cared for.

This means getting involved.

  2. hey!! i totally agree with you. i am so glad that you think of things and then through reading what you were thinking about we are brought to think of them too. thanks alot. i am not saying that i like you to do all the thinking but sometimes i think we need to think more of just our personal needs and the needs of our friends and more in general sometimes. if you know what i mean? well we are frantically packing. got to run.

  3. if no one gets involved, nothing ever changes. getting involved can be messy and extremely painful but it can also be very rewarding. however, as beth would say, “pick your battles.” πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Darrel. Miss da kids eh/

    I suppose, phebe, “pick your battles.” The deal here is, “get involved.” There’s too much uninvolvement, and the Bible plainly tells us to get involved. So let’s do, whaddaya say?
