My fellow Christians: The words of Paul in Galatians 6:1-2 tell us, “1 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
With that in mind, regardless of who wins the Alabama senate race tomorrow, we need to remember that we are NOT called to tear one another apart. We are not given the responsibility of being one another’s punisher when we disagree with them. Actually, we are commissioned to lift one another up (see Galatians 6:2) and to support each other as we travel through life together. The hard truth here is: No one is perfect, no one has it all together, not everyone can agree on everything, and our judgments and criticisms of one another helps advance nothing.
So, when you disagree and feel like lashing out tomorrow, let’s try these three simple things first:
1. Demonstrate grace.
2. Love others freely.
3. Show Jesus.
God bless you. #discipleshipchallenge
