“Support”

 
Consider today two scriptures and some thoughts:

First consider 1 Corinthians 12:26.  This is a passage that is comparing the church to a physical body:  "If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together." 
 
Second read Romans 12:15.  This is a reference that is in the middle of many short commands about Christian living:  "Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep."
 
In recent days there has been so much to celebrate as well as heartbreaking things.  We are to support one another.  We must look for ways to share these wonderful joys while upholding those who are at a time of weakness.
 
When we serve one another, we serve the Lord. "And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'" (Matthew 25:40)
 
God gave us a great blessing, and showed His immense care for us, when He gave us one another in the church.
