Thought of the Day

Via Bro Greg

Thanks for the reminder. And who knew scripture could be so revealing, stripping us to the core, and yet leaving us feeling like we can yet do it well and better.

You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. So when you, a mere human, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment? Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
Romans 2:1-4 (TNIV)

Yes, and if we come to Church on Sunday, or whatever day, and encourage others to do the things we ourselves are not doing, that is a problem.
If we encourage people to pray, let's be sure we ourselves are praying first. It is so easy to "encourage" folks I think, but much harder to identify with them unless we have been there ourselves in the same situation. It has been said, that it is easy to criticize Peter for not walking on water. Have you ever walked on water?? Well if you haven't, then you have no right to criticize.
