Today Reminder – 23 September 2016

A reminder for today
Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. (Galatians 6:1)

Wow, what an awesome verse. The world has become a dreadful pace of hate, jealousy and deceit. I have always been a huge fan of Angelina and Brat and when they got together I did not see it as leave Jennifer for Angelina but rather that two compatible hearts that met each other. Their divorce is obviously not a nice subject yet the world publicly scrutinize them and so many people are quick to jump on the judgement wagon. We are all suddenly holy and without fault as we make our own assumptions on their sorrow. The fact is that they are also just human and if they found an area where they cannot solve their problems and separation is the only way so be it. So many go through that same ordeal daily and yet we are all very quick to raise our voice and have an opinion. 

I love this verse because Paul says that instead of judging and punishing we should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. So instead of thinking ourselves better than other we should humble ourselves and be someone that stands by them and help them. Everyone makes mistakes and to act as if you have never made a mistake is purely selfish and ridiculous. 

So today I want you to see other as people for they all just human and they all make mistakes. Some make more mistakes than other but we are all loved and forgiven by the same God and we are all the same in His eye. Do not judge and do not assume. Be the voice of reason that will lead the lost back to the Lord instead of destroying the last of what is left of them.

Lord, in your hands I lay us all today and I pray that you will heal and renew all our hearts and lead us onto the right path for your glory. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
