Divisions

Thank you for my friend, Sue, who is such a strong Christian and lives what she believes. We disagree on so many things yet we remain good friends and accept each other as sisters despite our differences. I think that is how you mean for the church to be. We should be able to still love and get along with our brothers and sisters even though we disagree on things. I know you are not pleased when your Church keeps dividing into smaller and smaller groups based on petty differences. Sometimes it seems like some congregations have forgotten that there are many people all around us dying and going to hell because they don't know Jesus. They spend time arguing and splitting over things like church signs. The early church didn't even have signs. I'm sorry, God; I'm getting off on a tangent, but these things bother me. Help me personally to keep focused on Jesus and the message of salvation. Don't let me get involved in silly and useless squabbles.
