We’re talking here on the front porch about controlling our reactions. Check this out. When somebody disappoints you be gentle and not judgmental.
Romans 14:1(NIV) says, “Accept him who is weak in the faith without passing judgment on disputable matters.” Good advice.
Happiness comes when you can accept people who have not attained your level of perfection. They don’t have to reach up to your standards to be loved.
Galatians 6:1-2 (NIV), “If someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens.”
How do you react when somebody messes up there life? Do you get excited about it? “I told you so! I could see it coming! Only a fool would have done that. I wouldn’t have been that dumb.” Do you have a secret sense of satisfaction when other people blow it?
Meekness is when people disappoint you, then you are gentle, not judgmental.
The one thing that angered JESUS most, more than anything else in life, was self-righteous religious people who were always judging others.
Just a thought from the front porch…
