A “One Anothering” Thought
A schism is a division or disunion. This verse is saying that there should not be any divisions or disunions in Christ’s church, but that all members should care for one another.
To Care means:
- to feel concern
- to look after
- to attend to
In other words, Paul says that we believers should look after one another.
We should show concern for one another’s needs and wants.
We should attend to things we can do for one another.
We should provide prayer support when necessary and material support as we are able.
ONE-ANOTHERING IN ACTION:
Pay close attention to your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Do you see a need you can meet?
Are you able to give prayer support to someone or help in a material way?
Perhaps all that may be needed is a pat on the back or a hand of comfort to show you understand and care.
Maybe a phone call or a thoughtful note is all that’s necessary.
There are many ways we can care for one another…try finding one way you can do so today.
This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other equally. 1 Corinthians 12:25 [NLT]
