It’s Not My Place

It’s not my place to judge whether or not your lifestyle is right.

It’s not my place to judge whether or not you are a good parent.

It’s not my place to judge whether or not you are a good spouse.

It’s not my place to judge whether or not you are a hard worker.

It’s not my place to judge whether or not you are intelligent.

It’s not my place to judge whether or not you are beautiful.

IT’S NOT MY PLACE TO JUDGE.

Have you noticed a theme? I hope so. I’m not trying very hard to be subtle.

There is a lot of noise in the world.  Static telling us what beauty, intelligence and happiness looks like. Pithy one-liners telling us that if we don’t look, act or talk a certain way, then we are wrong.

I think that it is long past time that we tune out the static of the world and tune into the commandment given to us by God:

“This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.” -John 15:12

All throughout the Bible, we are called to love.

“This is my command: Love each other.” -John 15:17

“For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.”- 1 John 3:11

“Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor.”- Romans 12:10

This just a small sampling of how many times God calls us to love one another, treat each other with compassion and extend grace to each other. Tune out the static and rest in the truth of God’s love.
