Some feel it's their calling to judge others for their faults. But as Christians, we don't walk in judgment but in humility. Not one of us deserves the salvation we were given because we're ALL sinners saved by grace. And not one of us is perfect, as we all still do things we shouldn't and … Continue reading Loving Beyond the Faults

What if I Don’t Like Them?
We're all different. We all come from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and social statuses, yet as Christians, God told us to love each other. It's not about feelings or biases; it's about obedience. When we see others as Jesus sees us and realize that our own sins were enough to bring Jesus down from Heaven to … Continue reading What if I Don’t Like Them?
As Christians in this busy, fast-paced world, it can be easy at times to allow our attitudes and actions to be like the world. We neglect to be kind, show compassion, offer a helping hand, and forgive those who don't deserve it. We forget that Jesus forgave us for our sins when we didn't deserve … Continue reading Looking Beyond
When we run into other Christians who appear unfriendly or strangers who treat us rudely, often our first reaction is to return the negative gesture. But this is wrong because we don't know what they're going through or how badly they're hurting on the inside—but God knows. He may have put them on our path … Continue reading First Reactions

The Importance of Forgiving
Jesus said in Matthew 6:12, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” Forgiveness is what being a Christian is all about.

Children, You’re Hurting Our Heavenly Father!
Too many Christians spend their free time criticizing other Christians. It seems that a lot of focus today is put on knocking down the brethren and pointing out how they are still lost in sin. Sometimes I think that our Heavenly Father looks down at us and just wants to shout, “Children, stop fighting!” Oh, how all … Continue reading Children, You’re Hurting Our Heavenly Father!
