Judmentalism Part 2
A few posts back I talked about judging others. God has continued conversation about this with me and here is what He has shown me. Many times, if not all the time, my judgments are not necessarily accurate. Shocking, I know. I am only seeing a cross-section of a situation. A snapshot if you will. In the past week or so He has shown me different sides of situations that I was quick to make a call on. And shocking again, there was more to a situation than I knew or was privy to. Let's just say some situations are multi-faceted, just like a jewel. God sees what is really going on in a heart, not me. Shocking, yet once more.
Unless it is me right smack dab in the middle of a situation I really have no idea the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth(and even then my truth can be distorted). How it appears is not necessarily the way it is. So all that to say God has has said to me gently 'love covers a multitude of sins'. I am not advocating a 'live and let live' philosophy or a 'don't ask don't tell' policy. But for me, I think I need to work on being 'slow to speak and quick to hear', 'speaking truth in love', and 'loving others as myself'.
Jamie has a great video of Jeremy Camp singing 'Empty Me'. Oh, Jesus that is what I need from you. More of You and less of me. Because I can be so sinful myself and not even see the plank in my own eye.
