More to come...

Why do we judge other people? Why do we sum up people by the way they look, the car they drive, the town they grew up in, the church they go to, the neighbor hood they live in? Why? Judgment is such a contagious thing, isn't it? I mean, you're around people who are pretty judgmental, and you find yourself judging others in the exact same way. I'm guilty of this. I think most of us are. After listening to Dan's message on Sunday night, I have decided to ask God for fresh eyes. I need to see people they way that Jesus sees them. Ephesians lays it down pretty simply for us, we were dead in our sin, but by the grace of God we were saved. ALL OF US. God saved all of us. Not just the ones who have blue eyes. Not just the ones who went to Foothill High School. Not just the ones who go to Little Country Church. God saved all of us. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- and by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9.
It is more important to remember that we were all created in God's image, so we should see that in each other first, before anything else.
