What Are You Seeing?

It is so easy to focus on the failures and shortcomings of others - especially of family members and close friends. Have you noticed a tendency to judge the weaknesses of others against your own strengths?

What did you do to gain those strengths? You say you worked hard, you studied long hours. Where did you get that healthy body? What did you do to gain a capable mind?

Face it - everything you are and all that you have achieved can be traced back to the grace of God.

Rather than fault finding; try looking for evidences of God's grace at work in the lives of those closest to you.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.   (1 Corinthians 13:2)
