Romans twelve, sixteen

Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!

Imagine it. You’re at a party, there are some people you know, but mostly people you don’t know. You scan the room and find somebody you don’t know real well, but would like to talk to. Why? Well, if you could know it deep inside, maybe it’s because you think this person can “advance you”. They know someone or they are someone that can help you get ahead at work. They are somebody you’d like to know better because they seem beautiful and together and successful.

Imagine this. You’re at a party. There is somebody who doesn’t seem comfortable at all. They might smell funny (maybe because they’re wearing the only clothes they currently own). They have nothing to offer anyone, and no one is engaging them at all. They might have a reputation. They might be hurting. They might be broken.

Imagine that…
