    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking. ...

    For I also am a man placed under authority, having under myself soldiers. I tell this one, 'Go!' and he goes; and to another, 'Come!' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it.' When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude who followed him,...

Walk a Mile in Their Shoes

  • Therefore you are without excuse, O man, whoever you are who judge. For in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself. For you who judge practice the same things. Romans 2:1 WEB

    The congregation grew silent as the elder finished his speech on judging others. He told us that each time that he had looked at another's mistakes and said 'I would never do that', that later he found himself doing just that.

    He was now in his late seventies, and he said that he thought that he had completed his list. Everything that he had said that he would never ever do, he had ended up doing later. Admittedly, he was considerably ahead of those of us who were still working on it.

    It took me a long time to learn that what I so hated in others, was often because they were a mirror of what was in me. It amazes me how self righteous we can feel while looking down on someone else. Every time that I have placed myself above someone else's sin, what they had came to visit my own house later.

    Jesus said: 'Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but don't consider the beam that is in your own eye?' Matthew 7:3.

    Save yourself loads of embarrassment and laps around the mountain by biting your tongue before you say anything bad about what someone else is doing. Let God correct the sin in people's lives. If you do have to correct someone, do it in the kindest possible way. Help them get up and restore them. Picture yourself in their shoes, because you are certainly capable of doing the same thing.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You help me see past the mistakes of others. Fill me with Your love and help me restore those that have lost their way. Give me words of wisdom and the right attitude so that I can be a help, and not a hindrance, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

 Father help me not to judge others but to help others, because I never know what I would do if I were in their situation, and help me with 'rubbing people the wrong way'. Sometime my way seems to be a little harsh to them. I want to be strong minded but in a gentle way. Amen.

Yes we are all guilty at least at some point of judging others whether we even realize it or not, its in our nature, and even though I try so hard not to I still catch myself doing it again, So I think I can sincerely say we are all a work in progress, some are better at it than others, but we should always keep trying and praying about. Myself especially. Thank you for this reminder Pastor Dion.

Heavenly Father I pray that You help me see past the mistakes of others. Fill me with Your love and help me restore those that have lost their way. Give me words of wisdom and the right attitude so that I can be a help, and not a hindrance, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen!
