Nothing deep here, just four things I think we should consider before we open our mouths…
1. They come to church looking for something and it doesn’t happen fast enough, so they leave.
2. They come to church looking for something and it happens quickly, then they leave.
3. We, who should be mature in the faith, run them away because we forget they are weaker, OR we aren’t nurturing enough, OR we’re too self-righteous.
4. They came seeking something other than God. This is usually the reason for 1 & 2. (That will be discussed in tomorrow’s post.)
Romans 14:1 (NKJV)
Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things.
Romans 15:1 (NKJV)
We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the week, and not to please ourselves.
