To build a healthy church, people have to learn how to migrate from membership to relationship and from community to family. You don’t just run and join a new family when you have an issue; you work things out because you are family.
God’s church is perfect, but the people in it are not. That means we will all have good and bad days. There will be seasons of harvest, but also seasons of sowing. I’m a pastor, but there may be times I forget to shake someone’s hand or I might even say something wrong, but to see anyone leave over issues like this says they are not willing to fight for their family, they just try to find a new one. The problem is, after a while you’ll find, all families have problems and if you leave one because of that, get ready to keep moving.
Families suffer when they do not communicate properly with one another. When members choose to keep things inside, it can end up causing bitterness and resentment. Even the Bible gives us instructions on how to deal with an offense in the body of Christ. (Matthew 18:15-20)
My advice is to TALK IT OUT, WORK IT OUT, AND GET IT OUT.
MAINTAIN THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT IN THE BOND OF PEACE.
