Day 15 - 31DSS

Luke 6:37-38 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Agree to disagree.  Such a simple phrase but sometimes that's all we need to remember.  There are times in life that you will be faced with something or someone that you disagree with.  This is a daily thing, yes, daily.  A coworker, spouse, child, friend, anyone, no one will do things the exact same way you do them, nor do you want them to.  This is what makes us individuals.  We cannot judge another's decisions and being mindful of that is supporting their right to choose.
We are blessed with many options regarding just about anything in life and while I choose one way and my friends choose another, it is my responsibility to respect their decision.  It is not my right to question the validity of the choice or say negative things about it, they deserve my support regarding it.  The way we handle these choices and situations is a great measure of the God's grace shining through us.  We all are created human, full of human failings and yet God has forgiven us for every transgression before we even commit it.  Instead of carrying the barrel of righteousness and judgement with you each day, walk with the ladle of wisdom and grace sharing such blessings to others wherever you go.
