First the church, then the world

On QBT today, this tidbit:

The NT tells saints to give preference to God’s people, then to others. “Always pursue what is good for one another and for all.” 1Th 5.15

One can see this preference also in Gl 6.10: “So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who belong to the family of faith.”

Are there other verses you can think of that show this church-first attention when it comes to the saints’ good works and love?
