We GET What We GIVE

Getting what we give….. 


Most of us do a pretty good job of surrounding ourselves with people who we can get along with pretty well. 


However, every now and then we are put into a situation with strangers who make us uncomfortable with their actions or we have an encounter with others whose behaviors may not match up with what we consider acceptable or normal. 


Now perhaps it’s different for you, but it’s in these times that my self-centered head likes to hold court and begin judging and condemning others because they are not doing or behaving the way I consider acceptable. 


You know what I mean. 


Like the guy who forgot to brush his teeth and you are trapped listening to him go on and on about something you could care less about while your mind tries to determine from his breath what his last meal was. 


Or the person who is making a mountain out of a molehill over something that is obviously important to them, yet insignificant in your life. 


Judging others is never good because it warps our opinions and does not give our heart a chance to see why the Lord has put this person in our path. 


We don’t have to agree with everyone we encounter, but we do need to treat them like we want to be treated...


Check your experience… 


“but we let God be the final judge.” Big Book pg. 70 


Lord, open the eyes of my heart and let me seek to understand instead of looking to be understood, AMEN. 


“Since you judge others for doing these things, why do you think you can avoid God’s judgment when you do the same things? Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you?” Romans 2: 3-4 


Have a blessed day Y’all!!
