I am a prisoner because of the Lord. So I am asking you to live a life worthy of what God chose you for. Don’t be proud at all. Be completely gentle. Be patient. Put up with one another in love. The Holy Spirit makes you one in every way. So try your best to remain as one. Let peace keep you together. There is one body. There is one Spirit. You were appointed to one hope when you were chosen. There is one Lord. There is one faith and one baptism. There is one God and Father of all. He is over everything. He is through everything. He is in everything. But each one of us has received a gift of grace, just as Christ wanted us to have it. Ephesians 4:1-7

In recovery, we are encouraged to look for the similarities in our lives, not the differences. Here we see Paul encouraging the people of Corinth similarly. Unity doesn’t just happen. It takes work! We are not all the same but we are in recovery with One Purpose. Changing our lives, to live better lives and be better people than we have been previous;y. Let us all use the ‘gift of grace’ to ‘encourage each other’ as we move forward ‘as one’
