Grace of God

I find it interesting when some Christians judge people.  Unfortunately, it's usually harsher then you would hear a worldly person judge.  It also grieves me because none of us can fully understand what another person is going through or why they act a certain way.

We honestly don't really know how we would act if put in a certain situation.  We can say all day long, "I would never do that" or "I will never be that way" but until we are faced with that problem, we don't know how we would handle it.  I have been one of those persons that sits on my high and mighty pedestal saying I would never do this or that but then have been smacked clean in the face with the fact that I acted exactly how I said I wouldn't! It's humbling and I've come to realize that if you're going to sit in judgment of others, you better be prepared for God to work in that particular area of your life! 

Falling off that pedestal, though, will give you a compassion for people and to love them as they are.  We aren't all Twiggy (I'm showing my age here...for you whippersnappers, google her!), we aren't all Mother Theresa, we aren't perfect in any way.  We all have issues and it is only through God's grace that we are clean before God.  He loves us just the way we are! Are we above God that we can't love others for who they are and how they look?  We should be showing God's grace to others instead of judging them or saying what's wrong with them.

Next time you find yourself doing this, it would be best to just say, "There for but the grace of God, go I" for that's the truth!
