There is an old saying that goes like this: people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. I think there is a lot of truth to it.
Care is what the world needs right now because increasingly our world is becoming divided by politics, COVID responses, race, and the like. Sadly, even the church is experiencing some level of division as a result. But when Peter shared how love covers a multitude of sins, he was reminding us that when we care for people, we tend to overcome even the deepest divisions with others… not always and not with all people, but with more than if we don’t care.
Honey does attract more flies than vinegar.
I am thankful that our church is filled with so many caring people. Each Sunday people come to church to learn, to serve, and to give because they care! They care about God, they care about growing spiritually, and they care about others.
During these divisive times, let’s care for each other. At the end of the day, that’s one of the many reasons why Jesus created His church. And it’s why small groups are a critical part of all we do at Lakeshore.
