I don’t see why we surround ourselves around christians but still carry our cross alone. We are meant to encourage each other, pray for each other, and love each other. To all my friends please don’t ever feel like you can’t tell me anything I’m honest but I don’t judge [at least i try not to] and I don’t take things lightly either. If you want me to pray for you about anything please tell me. I’ll even fast with you in a heartbeat. Doesn’t make sense that we are in Christ together but we bear our burdens alone. I’ll gladly help you carry it. =D
I was talking to one of my “mentors” at church on Sunday about my problems at church and we drifted off and he mentioned how charity work is important. I think the church is failing as a whole when they don’t involve in things bigger than themselves. I think when we just come to church, donate money to build a bigger church and pray for ourselves, families and places we’re from we are not doing what God wants us to do. He said to love, to care, to feed the hungry not look out for yourself and yours. Go read Matthew 25: 34-46.
I”m definitely guilty of this too but I’ve been working on it and the church as a whole needs to step up. [Of course not all churches are guilty of this.]
