Grace Instead of Judgment
How differently might our lives be if we didn’t have to fear the harsh criticisms?
Maybe we’d be willing to step out bolder for Jesus, be more vulnerable or live our lives less guarded.
Jesus made it very clear that he didn’t come to this world to bring condemnation. He never even condemned the worst sinners. He leveled his harshest criticisms against those sinners who cast judgments against others.
There is absolutely a place to speak the truth in love. But watching people sling unforgiving words of judgment at each other must absolutely break God’s heart.
I’m asking the Lord to rearrange my thoughts to be in alignment with His, to recognize areas in my own life that could use some work, and to help me extend grace to others … because I so desperately need it myself.
