Just Love-Even When its Ugly

So lately I have really been pondering the thought of peoples views and why they think/respond the way they do. Example being: someone made a comment of how you need to be on time/early even {whaaat} to church, if your not your basically not being a proper christian {i need to insert i’m not real sure what a proper christian looks like, i think its way messier then what we picture it being!}. When I first heard this I immediately got my dander up a bit…i’m generally ALWAYS late when one) its early morning and two) when i’m getting 2 children motivated and moving {by myself since the hubby has to be there prior to me}. So I took a bit of offense to this until I thought hmmm maybe this is how in his mind he shows his love/respect/worship to God. I don’t show these things to God in this way but i do by rocking out to worship music and giving it all to him…another area i’m sure some think i’m crazy for but when i get to worshiping i just can’t hold still! We need to remember to think about the other persons point of view before we judge, just because its not how we view or think doesn’t mean they are wrong.

The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:14

When we stop loving and get to judging our mouths then get to flapping so we really begin to stir the pot….don’t deny it you know you’ve done it. Some one has gotten under your skin so your high tailing it to your friend saying “are you kidding me can you believe that just came out of their mouth.”  We are only digging ourselves deeper and deeper into this incorrect thought process, we need to stop and think before we speak to avoid the hole! What an opportunity we may have if we can stop long enough to even ask the person “hey what did you mean by this because i heard this” maybe the real issue is we aren’t listening we are just in too big of hurry to assume what they intended to say.

Don’t speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God’s law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you. God alone, who gave the law, is the Judge. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to judge your neighbor? James 4:11-12

Much love ~w

election day is tomorrow need to be in prayer for a God guided vote and results. No matter the outcome He is still King of Kings.
