We all breathe and we all bleed

Are we really that different? We think we are. Some have college education. Some work in ditches. Sometimes that is the same person. Some have money; most don’t. We tend to place people in “classes” that we have created with our mind. We do it in our physical world and also do it in the spiritual world. We classify some as holy and some as sinners. I’m talking here within the church. We tend to have confidence in this person, but not that person. We look with our eyes and judge with our heart. We sure have things backwards.

1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him:for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

If God looks at the heart shouldn’t we? But you ask, how should I judge them if I can’t see the heart? Well, that’s the point. We’re not supposed to judge.

What do we do then? What is the answer? It’s simple, really. We need to quit doing God’s job for him. We’re not qualified. He didn’t call us to judge people. In fact, he warned us not to. We have a limited view. We can’t see what He sees. Then what is our job? Witness to people. Give them hope. Encourage them. Tell them to keep going. There’s an invisible hand at work that will take care of the rest.
