Building Up, not Tearing Down

I Corinthians 12:27-31

It’s always easier to tear down than to build. Criticism comes more naturally than creativity. But no one builds monuments to critics, nor remembers their words. Over the years, the church of Jesus has had many critics. There have even been those among us that have been used to create disunity. But if there is anything that spiritual gifts teach us, it is that we should build rather than destroy. So then, let us build up, not tear down.
