Some mornings you wake up, read a few lines and think, “If we all did this, we would sort out a lot of problems. If we all had this mindset then things would clear up pretty quickly.” I know there are complex problems, but I challenge us to stack those problems on one side and this remedy on the other and consider the outcome.
1 But we who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak, and not just please ourselves.
2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good to build him up.
3 For even Christ did not please himself, but just as it is written, "The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me."
4 For everything that was written in former times was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and through encouragement of the scriptures we may have hope.
5 Now may the God of endurance and comfort give you unity with one another in accordance with Christ Jesus,
6 so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord...
