Before You Leave Church

Kevin deYoung is currently blogging a series on “Dealing with disappointment in the church“.

One of his recent diagnostic questions was:

Is it possible I’ve overlooked ways the body has cared for me because I was hoping a different part of the body would care for me?

He concludes his answer with:

“Before you get angry, remember the goal is for the body to care for the body, not for the shoulder to always get a special backrub from its favorite hand.”

Sound familiar? Paul said it this way

when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love – Ephesians 4:16
