This should be branded on every Christians mind
Remember if before you speak
Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. Ephesians 4:1-6
Concerning being judgmental towards others, especially towards Christians. This should be branded on every Christians mind. Remember if before you speak.
Too often we are judgmental towards others in things that do not matter. It’s end result is fuel for the fire of anger and resentment. How many people have been driven away from church or how many people who are interested in Christians are driven away from Christianity because of these mean spirited people. It is a plague and must be driven out. Don’t forget, when you point the finger at someone else, there are three more pointing back at you.
There were times when I saw something I didn’t like in someone else, like say a bug shaggy beard or a tattoo, especially on a woman, but kept my mouth shut. Consequently I discovered some were pretty cool people.
Try this: the next time you see or hear something trivial about someone that rubs you the wrong way, before you open your mouth, quietly ask God what there is in your life that annoys Him.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) fill me with the Holy Spirit that my words may be gracious to everyone I meet today.I ask in the name of Him who exemplifies grace, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
