I came across this great little parody on the Mac ads you see on TV. It really provoked some thoughts.
We have a lot of our own stuff we need to unload, and we need to be ever aware that each of us has this baggage that we carry around. Our relationship to the Lord and with one another is the means by which Jesus helps us to deal with our baggage, and brings about maturity. Watch this video and think about the baggage. By the way, I hear the Holy Spirit is quite the baggage handler! All Aboard!
Whether a person is spiritually mature or not, they are bound to have baggage that will eventually come up when in fellowship with other believers. Believers that are spiritually immature may be afraid to get very close to people they perceive to have baggage, even though they themselves could have a lot as well.
