Leviticus 11:1-47; Psalms 113:1-115:8; Mark 2:23-3:12

Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. Romans 15:7

When she was young, a little girl I knew would open her arms whenever she saw me. It indicated she was glad to see me. Similarly, we should be happy to receive all believers. Getting along in God’s family takes love, submission, and hard work. Christ has brought together people with many differing interests and opinions but what unifies us is Christ. Beloved, let us show impartiality (James 2:1-9), forbearance (Eph. 4:2), and forgiveness (Eph. 4:32) toward one another. Let us esteem our brothers and sisters highly (Phil. 2:3-5). After all Christ does. —George Ferrier

Blest be the tie that binds, our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above. —John Fawcett
