Today's Inspiration: 1 Corinthians 13:6-7. Love does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoice in the truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Human beings have a tendency to judge others and label them without knowing their hearts and intentions. Everyone of us meant well for others but sometimes the things we see do not meet our expectation, causing us to label others incorrectly resulting in collapse of relationships. Even if we are allowed to explain, they don't accept and often doubt our good intentions. Such woes man cannot bear leading to strife in the spirit causing them to be ensnared. Only God understands our good intentions.

Have you ever experienced situations like these? I am sure you have and have discovered often too late that you have been unjustly wronged or wrongly labeled others resulting in unnecessary separation. Adam and Eve discovered too late that they have been deceived by the enemy of God's good intentions resulting in fall of man and separation from God rendering every human being born on this Earth a sinner.


As far as possible we should understand that there is a reason for everything under the sun. Isaiah prophesied that we should draw near to allow reasoning together and not to look at faults of others Isaiah 1:18. Jesus reinforced this truth not to look at the speck from the eyes of others unless we are spotless in our own eye. Matthew 7:5. In short we should not judge others from external appearance but like the Lord who judged man according to the attitudes and intensions of a man's heart. By their fruits you will know them. V20.


Prayer: Lord, man judged from outward appearance. Let me not easily judge others by what I see outwardly but teach me to judge according to Your righteousness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
