Last night, I was considering entertaining some negative thoughts about someone. I don’t even remember who it was. I’m sure it wasn’t you. Then I heard a small voice in my head or heart saying, “Don’t judge them.” I don’t know how I dared to ask this question, but I asked “Why not?” Before I had barely breathed the two words, I heard, “Because I love them.”
Don’t judge them because He loves them.
Since I felt I had the Lord’s attention, I began to talk to Him about some other people whose ways I do not approve of, presidential candidates and such. I thought surely He would agree with me about some .of these what I might call “shady characters.” However with each one He said the same thing, “Don’t judge them because I love them.” Food for thought.
