I have been very active on Twitter these past few weeks and I see a lot of Christians hating on other Christians, Christians spewing hate against others, and just hate in general. With everything that has been in the world recently, it seems that more and more people are blasting their judgment and negativity around all the social media platforms, and frankly it is tiring.
Here is the thing, everyone is judgmental. EVERYONE! Some people keep those judgments to themselves and others do not. There is a way to balance all that judgment out with with some understanding. The more we understand a topic, a situation, or a person’s way of living, the less judgment will be passed on our part. I have gone through a lot of development these past few years and working on being more understanding has been a priority for me. You see things more clearly without all that judgement and negatively clouding your opinions.
With all this understanding, comes the love. It is easier to love something or someone when you can put away that judgement and intolerance and understand that everyone is different. God made us to love as He loves us. The things going on in this world today makes it hard to see that love sometimes, but it is there, through all the darkness and fog. We have to be more willing to love others and accept that love in return.
Everyone was born a sinner. As Christians who believe in that sin, we cannot express hatred towards others who live differently, love differently and think differently than we do. They need to be able to see God through us and our actions. If not, then what the heck are we doing? We are to here be disciples and win people to Jesus. We cannot and will not succeed if we spew hate and indifference towards others. There is a fine line between having an opinion and sticking up for for said opinion without being hurtful or intolerant. Without this balance, we will never see our world change as we’d like to see it.
Luke 6:37 “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven”
