Concern for each other
I want to share an experience of a member in the World Mission Society Church of God(WMSCOG). The story is as follows;
One day, I worked on demolishing a house destroyed by fire. While I was cleaning a floor and collecting debris, a tiny piece of glass go stuck in my little finger. I had a little bit of blood on my finger, but I disregarded it since I had no problem working.
However, it became a problem on the following day. When I was lifting up heavy loads, I kept dropping them due to my little finger which had less strength. I only hurt my little finger, yet I had so much difficulty working. As I experienced this, I could feel the true meaning of the words in the Bible which say that every part of our body is equally important.
To be honest, sometimes I felt that some members in the World Mission Society Church of God(WMSCOG) were doing things that seemed important while others were doing things less important. I did not really realize that all the members are equally important and necessary; each of them is carrying our the mission entrusted by God.
I’m afraid that I’ve disregarded the efforts of the brothers and sisters in WMSCOG because of my lack of understanding. For this I feel sorry to Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother and to the members as well. “Love your brothers as yourself.” Following this teaching of God, from now on I will regard all my brothers and sisters as important and precious.
1 Corinthians 12:20-27 “As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
