Proverbs of a 37 yr old man
Though we are many individuals, Christ makes us one body and individuals who are connected to each other. Each of us must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to our neighbor, for we are all members of one body. Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ Himself, who is the head. Asking of needs or favors face to face in conversation directly before God so their is no confusion. You may need to push someone without force but with conviction. The more we really care about each other the more the love of God will work in our lives. Bearing as a witness to the goodness of God to others. If one part of the body suffers, all the other parts suffer with it; if one part is praised, all the other parts share its happiness. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.
