You Weren't Judged?
Matthew 18:23 “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. 25 Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.
26 “The servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ 27 The servant's master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
28 “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denari. He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.
The children of the king, those that have been given everything, all the riches of glory, a clean slate as if they had never done anything wrong, why is it that they can not forgive the minor offenses that are done against them?
What a huge sin it is for us to judge our brother when we have escaped judgment. I should not dare to devalue another person that has equal worth and receives equal love from God there is nobodythat is any better off at all.
Why can't we see that everybody on this planet is a sinner in need of a Savior?
If we found the salvation and forgiveness that we desperately needed then why can't we offer this free gift that we received to others?
Are you better than others, weren't you in the same situation in God's eyes? We are all his beloved children that need his son and it really doesn't matter how bad that other guys sin is because all sin is sin to the same degree.
I will try to view the world as God sees it. I am no better than any other human being on this planet.
Help me to see the world the way you see it Lord. Give me your eyes.
