We have the enabling and responsibility to care for those we call brothers and sisters at our local gatherings. What joy we miss by thinking it is not our job.
Perhaps with thoughtfulness and reprioritizing we can reclaim the truer image of what it means to be a Christian.
Going to church could be deadly if it does not translate into heart change and care for those around us.
Sometimes we will go to extremes to help those we care about, dispensing with propriety and fueling faith.
Immersed in the busy here and now taking care of our own things it is easy to forget our destination and our obligation to others.
