admonish-one-another We are the Church of God. And we need each other. We have a responsibility to teach and admonish one another in love and humility.

A man can counterfeit love, he can counterfeit faith, he can counterfeit hope and all of the other graces, but it is very difficult to counterfeit humility. — D.L. Moody

    Thank you so much for this excellent message! The part at the end about gently admonishing one another IS hard to do in love and humility, but is so important; you’re so right about that.

    Earlier, your mention of wearing nice clothes reminded me of what happened to me in the Dominican Republic on an Advocate/Sponsor tour. I was standing in front of the door of the tour bus, waiting to get on, and didn’t realize they were spraying it down with water on the other side. All the mud, grease, and black gunk came spraying up onto me from underneath and covered my nice khaki pants. The next morning, I said to my roommate, “I’m going to wear the same pants today because I’ll probably get just as dirty today” (as it turned out, we were heading to a precious child development center near the Haitian border that had never had a visit from sponsors before). She looked at me and said, “Those aren’t the same pants — they were ruined yesterday.” Well, miraculous as it was, they were the same pants — and they were clean and spotless! I pulled everything out of my suitcase to prove it to her. We were both stunned and then she exclaimed, “Jesus did the laundry while we were sleeping!” It was true. And the only reason we could come up with for why He did that was because we were going out to meet precious children, representing Christ Himself, and He wanted me to be clean! He’s truly amazing, thoughtful and also pretty hilarious at times!
