like precious oil

"Important in any community of faith is an ever-renewed expectation in what God is doing with our brothers and sisters in the faith. We refuse to label the others as one thing or another. We refuse to predict our brother's behavior, our sister's growth. Each person in the community is unique; each is specially loved and particularly led by the Spirit of God. How can I presume to make conclusions about anyone? How can I pretend to know your worth or your place?
...A community of faith flourishes when we view each other with this expectancy, wondering what God will do today in this one, in that one."

{Eugene Peterson A Long Obedience in the Same Direction}
