Shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
1 Corinthians 8:11

Our relationship to fellow Christians
Certain brothers or sisters can sometimes be overlooked or even ignored. They may not be noticed in the crowd, or are often in the back rows, where they are apparently of less importance than others. Today’s verse stresses their importance: it ennobles and dignifies them.

Let us imagine a pair of scales: on one side we see the brother, on the other we read, “for whom Christ died.” How precious, how significant that is! Christ died for that brother! What esteem, what respect lies in these words!

If I realise that the brother is so honoured and distinguished in this way, won’t that have an effect on my relationship to him? Will it change the way I regard him? Christ died for him! If my Lord paid such a price for my brother, who am I to overlook him or treat him disparagingly?

In the context of today’s verse the brother was weak, perhaps sensitive, easily offended, suffering verbal attacks, or one who is not yet so grounded in the faith. Shouldn’t we think of our own weaknesses, or what offends us? In certain situations we are just as sensitive, and we, too, have our weaknesses.

Let us learn to be more considerate and deal with one another with more feeling, knowing that my opposite number is my brother or my sister, “for whom Christ died”! If I can evaluate my brother and my sister in this light, then I see Christ in them.

Today’s reading: 1 Chronicles 9:1-44 · Psalm 83:1-9
