Consider How You Treat People

Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)

24And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

*Our job as believers is not just to win souls, but to keep each other encouraged in order for us to stay encouraged and focused on the path to fulfilling God's purpose. This includes encouraging all believers, and not just those you pick and choose. We all have struggles and strengths,and those strengths can help someone else out in their time of weakness if we look beyond who and what we know,and become more open to God's directions. Often, believers are some of the most interesting people to associate with because many forget to walk in love, but instead walk in their feelings or judgment. However, God tells us here that we shouldn't give up on meeting or being together because there is strength in numbers....That strength is found amongst each other if we are open to receiving as we are to giving our opinions, thoughts, and prayers. This is why we must be led by God on what to say and when to say it, which will help avoid taking matters into our own hands and continue to link believers rather than tear us a part. Consistency, guidance, obedience and love are the keys between our people and our Lord, Jesus Christ.
