My friend Shari left this morning on a red-eye flight back to Florida. But, not before she made me sit through an episode of 24.
Sorry friends. I’ve never really made friends with Jack. None the less, she managed to shush me the entire hour. Then, she sneezed over and over again during commercials.
For the love.
Despite her obsession for Mr. Jack Bauer, I did enjoy her visit. And, we did manage to share our hearts and where we felt Christ was leading us. I also told her the most recent issue God has been dealing with me on.
I know, right? It seems like I would have already dealt with this by now. I’m not sure how God deals with you, but He doesn’t seem to play around with me. Remember this post? At first, God whispered to me, “See people the way I see people.”
Oh, I totally got that. For a while.
Then, without even realizing it, I’d make a judgment on someone again. And, I know – I’m completely uncovering myself here. But, it’s true. I’d judge them for not making what I thought was a Godly decision or for walking in disobedience.
Until, God started showing me how ugly it all was. It was as if He put my judgments in my face and said, “Isn’t this ugly?”
I was convicted.
I’m becoming more and more conscious of it now. Perhaps, it’s kind of like forming a habit. You practice and practice not judging until you finally really see people the way He sees people.
As His children.
