Brent: exclusive sin
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
—Galatians 3:28 (NIV)
Exclusiveness and temperamental dislike are responsible for a great many sins against brotherly love, and must be fought down by every true follower of our Lord. When men are left to themselves, they gravitate into mutually exclusive groups composed of congenial classes or of congenial types. But Christianity steps in and breaks up these little sets, in order to blend them into one varied and splendid whole.
... Charles H. Brent (1862-1929), With God in the World , London: Longmans Green, 1914, p. 71 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
Lord, break up our cliques and clubs according to Your will.
