To Err is to be Human

Standard

It saddens me to know that we live in a very judgemental and unforgiving society. People are so quick to point the finger and make a judgement of someone without giving any thought or time to process what they have seen or experienced. I find myself standing in the line of judgement. A simple mistake that has turned into a full fledged attack of my character. I am thankful that I know without a doubt that God knows my heart. Without Him I would have already surrendered and been defeated. I am human. I am not perfect, nor have I ever claimed to be. The great news is that God does not expect us to be perfect. If we were perfect, then we would not need Him. However, God does want us to be more like Him and to walk in love. He will bring us to the fire from time to time in order to mold and shape us into the person He wants us to be. I know that I am not where I need to be in that regard, but I am thankful that I’m not where I use to be!

I have learned first hand what it feels like to be judged unfairly. I do not wish this pain on anyone. Romans 2:1 says, “Therefore, you have no excuse or defense or justification, O man, whoever you are who judges and condemns another. For in posing as judge and passing sentence on another, you condemn yourself, because you who judge are habitually practicing the very same things. Take the time to reflect on who you have judged unfairly and ask God to forgive you of this wrong doing.

Love in Christ,

Nichole
