Consider One Another

When one considers another, there is a special kinship that occurs between them. When a congregation considers one another, there is a whole family involved in the concerns, fears, doubts, difficulties, temptations, trials, etc. of each other. Within that context, consider that we should not be selfish, only caring for ourselves. We will likely only get so far by ourselves, but “two are better than one…and a threefold cord is not quickly broken” (Ecc. 4:9-12). “Strength in numbers” is a phrase we’ve likely heard throughout our lives. Here the Hebrews writer encourages brethren to be thoughtful of each other and to “provoke unto love and good works.”
