29] For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

Family Care

To me it's so ironic that the closest members of one's existence, namely his or her family, should in many cases keep from fighting. What a joyous thing it is indeed to have a family that is centered around pleasing Jesus Christ. Whether we have such an earthly family or not, as Christians, our family is the Church. Paul reminds us that no one intentionally harms his own body for pleasure, but yet it seems that the one unifying organization, God's family, is attacked from within its own members, as if one harming themselves. We should strive to build one another up. Life is difficult at the very least. Let's strive to be a kind refuge to a brother or sister in Christ today. The family of God should be cared for as much, or better, than we care about anything else.

FOR TODAY: Make an encouraging phone call to another Christian friend or family member today.
