We tend to judge others, because they are so different from the way we see things or do things.
Or others may have a seemingly successful ministry and people become jealous or think they are the sheriffs to the body of Christ to handle those poor misinformed souls. The judgmental actions taken therefore with words speak; This must be wrong!
To have unity and love makes us function as a true part of our body, which all parts are a necessity. I hate the division, and this is my personal way I see things.
I consider myself a child of God, period. No man can come to Jesus unless they become “like” little children. I remember never having an enemy as a child. I obeyed Daddy because I love and trust him.
I ask God to keep me innocent, so that I remain humble. A child knows other children and play together and there is no issue of race, creed, belief etc.. A child remains close to ABBA, because they only know the love of Abba.
Through hurts, shame and being among negative people and other issues, we can become JADED. Through our growing up experiences, they teach us that we cannot trust Abba or others. A child doesn’t have to know everything. AND…. I don’t know much, because I want to sit on Abbas lap and listen to his heart. I want to sit at his feet and learn from HIS heart and hand.
There are many things that I don’t need to know, unless ABBA tells me. Just as in our growth to child-likeness, we learn to decrease and He must increase. YES we must decrease!
We grow to places of service through humility. God can really trust a child-like soul because they love Abba. A child is always humble, young in nature and character. A place where there is no jealousy, envy, strife, etc.. We are simple as a child.
When we remain lowly and child-like, means we don’t have to know EVERYTHING, but just obey as Abba says. He gives us his approval daily. He is a good, great Father, so I can trust him always and remain his child-like servant.
I love my ABBA Father and it always pleases me when he loves me and has to correct my steps and takes time to correct me when I need it. HE is my shield and my exceeding great reward. It is all about falling so in love with the Lord.
He chooses to give us freedom to choose. Becoming a child of God is a high honor to God. Many take the road of pride. God knows how to humble us. May we all take a loving stance with our brothers and sisters and take things to prayer instead of using our words to assassinate them. Be quick to hear slow to speak and slow to wrath
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your soul,” James 1:19-21KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
