Matthew 18:35 "This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart."
I am becoming increasingly aware of people's hypocrisy towards people and their sin and it frustrates me honestly. The bible clearly states that WE ALL are sinners and have ALL sinned therefor we should be gracious towards others who do what we do - sin.
I am not sure why but many times our Jesus forgives us for our sins, shortcomings, faults and failures ... but not other people's ... this is sad! This is so unlike the real Jesus of the Bible!
I recently spoke to someone who has been divorced, has had premarital sex, has lied, slandered, gossiped, and so on ... and they had the audacity to stand in judgment of a fellow brother in Christ who has fallen into sin. This is the kind of stuff the makes people (sinners) RUN as far away from Christians, church or anything resembling religious faith.
Lord help us all to not stand in judgment of anyone ... may we be gracious and tenderhearted and full of compassion!
