I was reading a book on church planting or church growth when at the end of the book it was emphasized by the author that churches are in the business of building up others. This caused me to pause or even sort of shocked or stymied because of human tendency to think about self. Yet this concept is simple yet often overlooked even in church government.
Of course this does not mean that we will encourage or support wrong belief or practice. I believe it means we will support our fellow believers in obeying God. This unselfish attitude is a necessary ingredient to a growing church as the author admitted. Normally we think of ourselves first, and if we are willing to admit we become disgruntled when our wish are not satisfied.
I will meditate on this some more and see its wisdom.
