It’s Not Really Odd That…

  • A man who never visits anyone else has no one ever visit him.
  • A woman who never prays for anyone else has no one who prays for her.
  • A man who never contributes to the church is surprised that the church doesn’t have the money to aid his family members in distress.
  • A woman who never attends worship has no one at church who knows her needs.

To benefit spiritually from the community of faith, you have to be a part of the community of faith.  If you cut yourself off from it, you can’t be surprised that it doesn’t know who you are or what your spiritual needs might be.  Posting memes on facebook doesn’t make you a member of the Church.
