One of the greatest victims of our success, especially here in the western world, is our relationships. Most of us are cash rich and relationship poor. What’s more, our relentless pursuit of success creates “walls of hostility” between various people groups. When we squabble to put ourselves first, like the church at Corinth, we destroy community. The solution: let Jesus lead us into a new community with different values and a different vision; a community united in him.
