“She needs better _____ ,” I thought concerning someone I had reached out to about a certain matter.
Immediately the Holy Spirit of God broken into my thoughts.
“And you need more patience,” the Lord told me.
Then He compelled me to write this message.
We can be so quick to criticize, judge, condemn, and look down upon others related to how we feel they fall short. Meanwhile we should be seeking forgiveness for and making changes regarding our own shortfalls and then be best able to love and help others concerning theirs.
This is what Jesus has to say about this matter:
“”Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:1-5 NKJV
