holding people to a harsh standard…

any time you find somebody really judgmental, really critical, hyper critical, they’re unforgiving, they’re unbending, they’re rigid, they’re unloving.  they’re always putting people down and they’re always giving a judgmental attitude toward others.  you can know one thing.  they are hiding unresolved guilt.  count on it!

and inside they don’t feel forgiven so they are being unforgiving of others.  if i don’t like the way i feel i certainly don’t want you feeling good. 

if you find a parent who’s rigid, demanding perfection in his or her children they are revealing their own insecurity and their own guilt.  when we feel unforgiven, we tend to be unforgiving and we hold people to a harsh standard. 

so if you’re ever going to let it go and get on with your life, the people who’ve hurt you you’ve got to realize first that GOD has forgiven you.  and the first key to understanding forgiveness of others is to remember how much you’ve been forgiven.  no condemnation.  it’s all been wiped out. 

GOD is not mad at you.  HE’s wiped out all your sin as you’ve put your trust in CHRIST.  you will never have to forgive anybody else more than GOD has already forgiven you. 

be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other just as in CHRIST, GOD forgave you. 

just a thought from the front porch…
