Loving One Another Amid Our Differences

Six Biblical Guidelines For Loving One Another Amid Our Differences: (HT/adapted from John Piper)

  1. Avoid gossiping.
  2. Identify evidences of God’s gifts in each other and speak them to each other and about each other.
  3. Speak criticism directly to each other if we feel the need to speak to others about it.
  4. Look for, and assume, the best motive in the other’s viewpoint, especially when we disagree.
  5. Think often of the magnificent things we hold in common.
  6. Be more amazed that we are forgiven than that we are right. And in that way, let’s shape our relationships by the gospel.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” -Jesus, John 13:34-35
