Friends

Matthew 7:2-5 NLT

For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?  How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?  Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye. 

Sooo after whining earlier this week about people, God gave me another reality check. (Be has to do that a lot) How am I treating people?  Who am I ignoring?  As He is showing me who to cut or limit in my life He is also showing me who to bring more of into my life and I have missed them oh so much.  They have been true friends even when I was a horrible one. 

So now He wants me to ask all of you:  How are you treating others?  Who do u need less of?  More of?  And are u ready to see, accept, fix and make amends to those you are hurting with your “all about me” or lying attitudes??  You may not even realize you are doing it.  Now is the time to make a self evaluation.  I know it is helping me lots.

Lord,  please open ours and our hearts to see how we are to others.  Help us remember that the pain we feel is the pain others feel when we are horrible to them.  Help us to love as Jesus loved and walk as He walked.  In your glorious name AMEN
