“Look at the obvious facts. Those who say they belong to Christ must recognize that we belong to Christ as much as they do.”(2 Corinthians 10:7)
It is easy to judge others. We take a quick glance at someone and because of what they are wearing or doing, we can easily jump to conclusions. As the body of Christ, we must be careful to not judge by the outside. While judging the outside may only take a moment, judging by inward motives takes time, thought and believing the best.
The people in the Bible all messed up. Adam, Noah, Moses, David, Peter, they had that in common. Know what else they had in common? They did not give up. They continued to trust the Lord and allowed Him to work in their lives. They were not perfect, but God used them. Did He use them because they looked a certain way? No, God used them because they were willing to follow Him.
How about you? Are you looking only on the outside when you meet someone? Ask God to give you eyes to see past the outside, so that you can show the love of Christ to everyone you meet.
“Do not judge people and circumstances by outside appearances”
Heavenly Father, I know there have been times I judged someone based on the outside appearance. Especially when we should not judge at all. Forgive me and help me to look past those things so I can be a blessing to them. Give me a heart for those who others may cast aside. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
