mutual attention

mutual attention

1 Thessalonians 5:14-15 (JDV)

1 Thessalonians 5:14 And we encourage you, brothers and sisters: warn those who are idle, comfort those who are discouraged, help those who are weak, be patient with everyone.
1 Thessalonians 5:15 See to it that no one repays evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all.

mutual attention

Everyone in the congregation is important and needs our attention and our ministry. Even if our ministry is specialized, we can not ignore anyone’s needs. If we see a lazy brother, we need to put on our warning hat. If we see a sorrowing sister, we need or comforting hat. The weak need us to show them strength. Everyone needs us to serve patiently.

If we chose to chase anything, it should not be personal preferences or pet doctrines. It should be one another’s good.

Lord, keep us from getting sidetracked on our pursuit for one another’s good.
