One Anothering

How’s your “one anothering” going this year?

“What’s that?” you say.

Something that God emphasizes repeatedly in the New Testament. In fact, over 50 passages talk about how we are are to treat “one another.” Something that God thinks is pretty important. So, something we should consider important as well.

Below you will find all the relevant (i.e., not, “they said to one another”) passages from the New Testament on “one anothering.” Take a few minutes to read each one. Then, choose one to really work on the next few days. Ask for an abundant supply of God’s grace through the knowledge of Christ, memorize the verse, meditate on the verse, list some ways you can apply the verse, then do it! And, if this helped you, encourage others to try by commenting below.
