Still Human, Part 2

Love people through problems

So, God, it’s all well and good that You forgive me when I fall down, but what about those other people? Why is it fair to accept forgiveness for yourself but not for others? There are a million reasons why you think other people are out of line, and some of them may be legitimate, but you are not to judge.

There’s a reason why someone has fallen from grace, lost their temper, acted out of pain. They need help, not judgement. Find out what you can do. Be there for them. Pray. Let’s not shoot our wounded. Love them back to a place of joy and acceptance. It is possible to love people who are behaving badly. Jesus does it all the time and we’re supposed to do what He does.

Humanity is messy. It carries beauty and warts and God loves it. There’s nothing He won’t do for us, so we need to love like He loves. Be a real friend, not a paper friend. Let us not therefore judge one another any more, but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way. (Rom 14:13) Don’t let someone’s past get in the way of their future.
