What Tribe are you from?

Have you ever been someplace and you felt out of place? like to don’t fit in? like you don’t know any body? that happens a lot in our churches/ body of Christ and it is something that we can not ignore anymore. recently I was speaking to someone in the church a minister of the Lord and they shared with me how often they have visited churches and when the thought they would be welcomed and received they were not and not that it is a bad thing because Jesus said we will be rejected. but the thing that the Lord began to teach me when I experienced this very thing was that the Lord showed me that often when i go to a church or ministry and i find myself teaching or instructing others in the way , i have recognized that that is not my tribe. When i find myself working and laboring then i realize that that’s not my tribe. what do i mean??? this how the Lord taught me. Growing up in the church i was in a WORD Church( Literally the Name of the Church is called Word Church of God in the Bronx,NY) and at this church we were taught the Word of God,taught to pray the Word, taught to meditate on the Word , taught to do everything by the Word. No i really mean we did everything through the Word. But as i got older in the faith and began the interact with other believers i got to see that everyone did and or does not have a strong Word life. Some believers have different strengths based on the type of church you attend or attended. some focus on prayer, some on worship, some on praise and many other very important and biblical subjects. but how i began to see what God was saying about tribes was i meet a brother in the Lord and when we had our conversations there was very little instructions that i found myself giving to him but as he spoke the scripture and quoted the scripture it was refreshing to me. then i attended a friends church and when the Pastor was preaching he didn’t do through the ritual of giving a whole lot of stories and poems and other fluffy stuff he got right into the Word of God and began to preach Jesus and i found it to be like him pouring a cold glass of water on me as i have been in the dessert.then i thought OK another word Man, that is developing a word church, then i saw what the Lord was revealing that we are of the same tribe.
So when you’re interacting with people from the same tribe they will be a refreshing to you, God will use them to water you and rejuvenate you versus having you to labor in love . Please by no means is this a rebuke of anything of the sort, it is a way for use to recognized who we are and it helps us to discern how to function without offense and especially without offending anyone. this is my thoughts. You know it’s not about isolating ourselves because WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST but knowing who is who and again how to recognized others. I find that often because of the Apostolic call on my life that i can interact with various different tribes and be blessed by them, but its important to know who’s tribe your from.
Paul said he was from the tribe of Benjamin, Jesus is from the tribe of Judah what tribe are you from(Spiritually) you should know.
