I've been asking myself these questions as of late, and I would to hear some different opinions.

I think about this often, actually. What can be used to build up the Body of Christ in different ways. An obvious example is my involvement in youth ministry, which has a tangible benefit in building the present and the future of the Church. For nine years I've been volunteering at the local Life Teen program, and I know that by teaching and being there for those youth I'm helping building up the Body.

As for what can harm the Church, this ties into the same ministry. I look at what harms those kids, and that can harm the Church. Things like pre-marital sex, getting plastered, doing drugs, lack of belief in the Sacraments.

That's a hands-on practical thing. But to me, the biggest battle we all face is spiritual warfare. The Devil is cheesed off that he lost to God, so he will do ANYTHING to drag down God's most treasured creation - humanity. We are always under attack, and would do well to equip ourselves for that fight.
