I will pick back up tomorrow on what we have been discussing but I have to share this, this morning. I am on the trail last night and I see this lady stop to back into a space along the Rails of Trails, and this guy in a truck comes in behind her, and pulls straight into where she is about to back in. I get hot quick. In that moment, I noticed she had two car seats and, two little children sitting in them. I think to myself, "How rude!". This guy is just plan mean to this lady. I am going to say something. So I get out of my vehicle and start over to his truck and as I do, he walks over to the lady's car, opens the back seat door and, the two kids yell, "Daddy!". I stop dead in my tracks and start laughing to myself. I hear God tell me, "Good thing you didn't say any thing--that's their Daddy." "I'm your Daddy and I told you, "Slow to anger and judge not." I can not believe how quickly I almost took that bait. Had God not saved me, I would have really been in some trouble.
This got me thinking about what Jesus told us. Look it up in Matthew 7:1 of the NIV and it says, "Do not judge, or you too will be judged." It is so easy to use our five physical senses and come to a quick conclusion. We must remember our five physical senses will fail us. The only thing that will not fail every time is the word of God. So today, get in the word and let the word get in you! Until tomorrow practice what you just read and share it with a friend.
