Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude.” 1 Peter 3:8 NLT
What a great statement to live by! As the body of Jesus Christ, we should strive to be in one accord. It is a beautiful thing when the church lives in harmony. A church with no harmony is like listening to an orchestra with no harmony. When we all play our parts well, and in sync, we make beautiful music that brings melody to life. God is most pleased, as our Father, when He sees us, His children, walking and working in harmony. We are to love one another as family. We must be tender hearted in our dealings with each other, not harsh and cold. We must always keep an humble attitude in all things. Being arrogant and prideful is not from the Spirit of God. Imagine living in a church environment that adhered to this code of conduct. Today, by God's grace, I will strive to live by this code. How about you?
