    When David and his men came to the city, behold, it was burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters were taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voice and wept until they had no more power to weep. David's two wives were taken captive, Ahinoa...

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 listened quietly as the elder finished his speech on judging others. He said each time that he had looked at another's mistakes and said, "I would never do that," that later he found himself doing what they had done. He was now in his late seventies and was hoping that he had finally completed his list. Admittedly, he was considerably ahead of those of us who were still adding to our list.

    I have found too often that what I hate in others is a mirror of what is in me. It is incredible how self-righteous we can feel while looking down our nose at someone else. Every time I have placed myself above someone else's sin, it came to visit my 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 saying anything negative about what someone else happens to be doing. Let God correct the sin in other people's lives and concentrate on fixing your own. If you do have to correct someone, do it in the kindest possible way. Help restore them and get back on their feet. Picture yourself in their shoes, because you are certainly capable of doing the same thing when given the right circumstances.

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

Heavenly Father I know I have sin and I need You to forgive my attitude towards others while I don't see what my sins are. Give me the strength to follow Your word and to show others Your love before I judge them, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen. Lead me oh Lord. 

Thank you Pastor for this advice, God bless you and Sylvia.
