We were created to enjoy united and loving relationships with God and our brothers and sisters in Christ. God has called us to love as He loves and to remember that we are members of the body of Christ. We have the daily choice to speak words that bring comfort, joy, hope, encouragement, and life or words that bring pain, guilt, sorrow, shame, and death.
Study it Out
- According to 1 Corinthians 12:12-26, are there any unnecessary or unimportant parts of the body? How do our words affect us as well as the other members of the body?
- What is the result of arguing according to 2 Timothy 2:14? What does Proverbs 15:1-4 encourage us to do instead?
Do you find yourself arguing or launching verbal attacks on others often? How can remembering that you are a part of the body of Christ help you to build up other members of body?
