How do I want to be treated?

How do I want to be treated? With respect. With understanding. I like to be given the benefit of the doubt.

How do you want to be treated?

Jesus said “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize faults-unless, of course, you want the same treatment.”

I don’t want to be treated that way. I should never be critical of others. Hard to do but through the power of His Spirit I can.

Who understands me?

Wow. Now here is a thought. How much of our current culture is built around trying to understand ourselves. Way too much and not the way things are in God’s world.

“We have to get rid of the idea that we understand ourselves. That is always the last bit of pride to go. The only One who understands us is God.” ~~Oswald Chambers
