“I believe all people are loved by God and need Jesus Christ as their savior.”
In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Six-year-old Ava was sent to clean her room. A few minutes later she asked her mom if she could go play with friends. Her mother asked, “Did you straighten your room?” “Yes, I did , Mom.” Out to play she went.
Later, Mom walked into Ava’s room and found all the stuffed animals on the floor instead of on the bed. sighing agitatedly, Mom started to pick up the toys and put them on Ava’s bed. But her sign turned to a chuckle as she realized her daughter had carefully organized the animals. The bears were together, her dolphin and mermaid were together, the dogs were all together, and so were the cats. She had straightened her room! Mom realized she had judged her daughter’s efforts based on her own expectations.
Do you judge others as though the way you think is the only right way? Remembering we’re all created differently but loved equally by God helps you become more patient and understanding of others.
