"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace" -Ephesians 4:2-3
None of us are perfect, but all of us are called to unite for God's cause in the Holy Spirit. We are going to disagree, we are going to offend each other, we are going to misunderstand each other. However, our Lord urges us to keep the peace and to love one another. Is there anything God can't do? Is there any argument that can't be overcome by our shared love for Christ and His Spirit in us? But, can we live out that truth? My dear family, let us be honest to each other and true to our God. Let's be thankful, that by the grace of Jesus alone, we really can be one unified body to the world. Father, heal our hearts!
(And may we also stand united supporting our veterans today and always!)
