Portions of this post were originally published in July 2021…
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”
Ezekiel 36:26-27 NIV
We typically are quick to judge the thoughts and actions of others without considering there is more to every person than just what you see on the surface. We forget that God created all of us, everyone…even the people you struggle with or disagree with on most days. I like to remember the quote…’be kind to others, because everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.’ When you find your thoughts making judgements…stop and pray for God to fill you with kindness and compassion. Amen.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
