Bob was walking across a bridge when he saw a man named Jim, about to jump to his death.
“Don’t jump!” said Bob.
“Why not?” asked Jim. “I don’t have any friends.”
Bob: “Are you religious?”
Bob: “Me too! What denomination?”
Bob: “Me too! Southern Baptist or American Baptist?”
Bob: “Me too! Calvinist or Armenian?”
Bob: “Oh, I’m Armenian.” He then pushed Jim off the bridge.
Paul wrote, “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10).
Recovery Step: There are too many divisions in the body of Christ. And that is a huge benefit of recovery; it brings people together. You know someone who is contemplating jumping off some sort of a bridge today. My suggestion? Be their friend.
