Embrace the Believers

I read an article the other day about a man who does good.  However, instead of celebrating the good that he does in the world, I looked for ways to knock him down, because I don’t like his politics.

I’m not proud of that.

Though we may differ on how or why we do service for others, the point is that there is “sorrow that the eye can’t see” everywhere on this earth.  I should be glad when someone reaches out to ease others’ burdens.  Even if that person is a Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37).

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,”  our quarrel is against Satan, and against “spiritual wickedness” (Ephesians 6:12).

Those who live according to religion should embrace others who also live their lives according to a moral code.  This is especially true with those who are Christian.

Though we may differ on points of doctrine, we can agree on the supernal truths centered around the Savior of this world, Jesus Christ.  Those doctrines should help us unify in love and gratitude for goodness, wherever we can find it in this modern world.
