Romans 3:23New Living Translation (NLT)
23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.
This seems to be a hard scripture to remember. We often fall in the pit of judgement because someone is doing or did something that we wouldn’t do.
We readily accept that God can forgive us at a moments notice- never keeping score. But We are quick to keep a tally of everyone’s wrongdoing but our own.
Have we forgotten
Matthew 7:1New International Version (NIV)
Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
If the spotlight was on our lives, our homes, our jobs our day to day interactions…what would people see.
We all screw up, we all sin, right? We all have missed the mark if only occasionally?
The same God that saved you by grace is the same God who can deliver the “wrongdoers” we are so vocal about.
I’m not implying condoning SIN, I am strongly suggesting LOVING the sinner enough to want to see them change their behavior.
Going on FB rants, twitter tirades or any other social media platform to show your disgust and judgmental stance says more about you than the person you are displeased with.
Blessings to you!
