Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Christian tolerance?

Tolerance is no substitute for love.

Love shows support, encouragement, a willingness
to engage, and an interest to share.
Tolerance gives nothing but an acknowledgement
of, and a right to, presence.

What do you practice… tolerance or love?

Next time don’t just say…
”Hi, how are you?”

Show that you really care and express
an interest… encourage and support
the Truth in that person. If they have done
something in service to the Lord, praise the Lord
in their presence for the use
of their unique God-given talents.

We need each other.

“Now about brotherly love
we do not need to write to you,
for you yourselves have been taught by God
to love each other.”
- 1 Thessalonians 4:9 NIV
