Who Sits at The Right Hand of God?
I replied to a hub earlier today regarding the church allowing people who's sexual preference is different than ours. My response was, Do you sit at the right hand of God? Of course the answer is no because none of us are perfect. Yet we feel the need to judge others because their beliefs, life style, hair color, clothes, musical likes, movie choice, political views, religion, skin color and what not are the opposite of ours. What gives us the right to judge them? Nothing really does though it's a natural trait in us and sometimes we find it hard not to. I am guilty of that myself. I give myself a mental slap and apologize to God for being shallow. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't hear someone make a derogatory comment or reference about another person.
It makes me wonder the Why. Why do you feel threatened, why do you feel the need to point your finger at another, are you that insecure, if that's the case, take a step back and look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? Do you like the person you've become? Are you happy with your life choices? If the answer is no, do something about it, seek counseling, talk to a priest or put your big girl or boy pants on and deal with your issues. They won't go away just because you're pointing fingers at someone else.
Now I move onto the What? What could be so wrong in your life that you would rather make another person feel inept? What person did to you what you are now doing to someone else? What happened in your life? What causes you to belittle people? I don't know if you are aware but research in psychology indicates that those who behave in this manner don't like themselves, are unhappy in their lives and find it easier to ridicule another instead of looking inward, it's easier to see their failures than see your own. What do you think you could do to change what you've become into the person you want to be.
When is next. When do you stop being the bully? When do you treat them as you would want to be treated yourself. Because, I am sure you wouldn't be happy if they criticized you. When do you realize that we are all in this together. Each of us has felt unhappy, thought we failed ourselves or didn't like who we were. The difference they changed themselves. They realized that with God by their side a sense of calm washed over them. They began to see the good in others and even in themselves. When is enough, enough?
Where comes at the end. Where do you think you will be going once you've passed away? Do you think God would want you spreading your poison in heaven? He already had one arc angel and I'm sure he doesn't want another one. Though, up until the moment you've passed he will be waiting for open arms and prays that you've open your heart to receive his love. When that happens the where no longer counts because, that's when God is hugging you.
In closing, remember we are all children of God. We don't have the right to judge others, that will be left up to God when they've asked to gain acceptance into heaven. All God wants us to do is love one another as he has loved us. By helping each other, we are helping God.
Now, when you feel the need to make a comment, ask a rude question, look at another with dislike ask yourself, " Do You Sit at The Right Hand of God?"
