Timothy Guest C ‘18
God’s Measuring Stick
“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not and you will not be condemned .” Lk 6:37
It is all too easy to judge a person based simply on the fact that they are different from yourself. Many times people make assumptions about a person based on skin color, how they dress, or by what group they associate with. Moving past someone’s differences can be difficult, but imagine how hard it would be to get to heaven if God did the same thing. To God, we are all sinners, how could we possibly deserve the sacrifice Jesus has made for us? But God does not measure his children by how perfect they are. He instead chooses to judge our character by how we treat others, and He will treat us in an equal fashion. With this fact in mind, perhaps it will be much easier for us to look past a person’s outer appearance; after all, we are all sinners, and none of us is perfect.
Lord give me Your eyes, that I may see what You see in others. Amen.
