Correct Attitude to Others - Part 4


“Show family affection to one another with brotherly love. Outdo one another in showing honor.” Romans 12: 10 (HCSB)

When I was growing up, I had one sister. We would fight like cats and dogs over things, but if someone else tried to start a fight – we had each other’s backs.

Brotherly love. Philadelphia (Greek).

What we as fellow believers should have toward each other. OK. We might disagree with each other at times. We might have some real knock-down, drag-out fights over issues with each other. And, that can be alright, as long as we continue to have brotherly love in the process. However, when those outside (some call them pagans) begin to pick a fight with one of our brothers/sisters – we should be right there to have their back.

But, too often we stand by and watch the world beat up our family. We stand there and are silent when someone attacks the family. If we are going to show each other that we have this family love – we need to stand and help each other.

Today – see how you can lift up the spirits and show a love for those brothers and sisters around you. Let the world see something different in us. As the old pop song went – “We are family….”
