my fren was tellin mi of some issues that some members of her family are facin today...n i realised some very important things..
pple r given to us to care for n show concern for...so dat we may grow in such areas...to b fully human n fully Christian..of course, modern society would say no...everythin is economics n dialectical materialism or hedonism..but Christians should b more considerate n concerned n charitable...
we're different after all...so, its wif some disdain n disgust dat i recount the followin story...u see, my church worships in a commercial building...so we rented a floor n use it for services...n there are 2 other churches worshippin in different floors above us..so its realli a very Singaporean thing to have 3 churches worshippin in the same high rise buildin and havin mail sent to the same address..
the issue is dis..the members of each church r not very kind or generous or Christlike to each other...so, we fight over space in the elevator down after our services (unfortuanately, by some strange quirk of God's will...mayb predestination, our services have similar timings)...we fight over carparking space n we mutter curses n unfrenli stuff under our breath..i'm disgusted wif them n myself for such wanton behaviour...
we need to repent coz our actions n behaviour is anything but Christlike...n we are a slur on the name of Jesus Christ n a shame to Him...i recall the famous verse in Isaiah regardin Israel, "Because of you, my name is profaned amongst the nations"...we suck...period..
so there, we all need to grow in Christian care n concern for each other n in charity, longsuffering, grace, care, concern, love and kindness..i'm sorry for my actions n short temper..
