27. Live Larger
Verse Of The Day: May 27
Luke 6:37 NLT
““Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.”
People have all kinds of different standards and values but nearly everybody is disgusted by a person who is quick to judge others but wants everyone to give them a fair go.
Humans have an intrinsic value. This is why honour speaks volumes in every language. There is something inspiring about somebody that makes another person feel special.
The quickest way to see your life shrink is to make small of other people. We have no idea of the circumstances of others or the story behind their challenges.
There have been too many times where I have assumed something of a person and got it all wrong. The worse you do this the more severe it comes back to bite you. Getting information wrong about people is awful. Even if you have the facts, it never leaves a good taste in your mouth.
The best thing to do is to think well of all people. Forgive others and watch forgiveness flow through your life too. Have generous thoughts toward others and watch your life grow and enlarge. Choose to live larger.
How easy do I find it to think well of all people?
What areas do I struggle most?
Lord, You know everything about me and about others. I so easily assume things about people but You know all the facts. And You still love people. Help me to love like You love. Help me not to judge others.
In Jesus name. Amen.
