My reading this week has been a gentle and kind admonishing for me. I have been reminded that God is God and I am not.
1 Samuel 16:7b … God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Sometimes, I can be quick to pass judgment on another, yet I cannot possibly know what their reasons are for why they do what they do. I am not able to see the motives of another’s heart, but God is able.
So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God. Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine this— not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother’s way. Romans 14:12-13
What is important is that I am fully convinced in my own mind about how I live my life for the Lord Jesus and that I don’t make it difficult for others to do the same.
