Do you have problems with people that say that they believe in the same thing you do?


Many years ago there was this person who said they were a “Christian” and went to the same church that I did.  He was the kind of guy who was always trying to do well for God, but when I was with him, he drove me crazy.  He would always treat me as if  he was better than me and didn’t want to really talk to me.  When I tried to talk with him at our church, he would always be looking for someone else to talk to.  He was a deacon, seemed to love God, but he really drove me crazy.  In addition, he would treat his wife terribly, he would look at other women at the church, and to confront him would have been very bizarre.  If I did confront him, I don’t think he would have even listened to me.  Through this event, I think that I found out that God has made each of us for a reason.

(To read the complete story you can see it at: (1 Corinthians 12)  This part below really spoke to me:  I want you to think about how all this makes you more significant, not less. A body isn’t just a single part blown up into something huge. It’s all the different-but-similar parts arranged and functioning together. If Foot said, “I’m not elegant like Hand, embellished with rings; I guess I don’t belong to this body,” would that make it so? If Ear said, “I’m not beautiful like Eye, limpid and expressive; I don’t deserve a place on the head,” would you want to remove it from the body? If the body was all eye, how could it hear? If all ear, how could it smell? As it is, we see that God has carefully placed each part of the body right where he wanted it.  1 Corinthians 12:14-18 (MSG)

Do you believe that God has made everyone?  If you are the foot, do you let the hand drive you crazy?  If you are the foot, are you going to be the best foot around and work with the toes and ankle to get the job done?  Are you willing to let the eyes and ears help you?

Do You Really Believe?
