NEVER WOULD HAVE MADE IT
God’s guidance is all we need. His direction keeps us grounded. We just have to listen and obey. We can’t make it without God!
Sometimes, we criticize others for the exact things that we do.
That is why we need to check ourselves
Matthews 7: 1-5 say it better than me. It reads: "Do not judge so that you will not be judged. "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. "Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? "Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye? "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye."
Those words crystallize the message and bring it home. We need to keep our eyes focused on ourselves and our conduct which is an all inclusive job which leaves little time for much else. Watching others and criticizing/judging them is not the best course of action. Really ... Who has the time?
We need God’s direction and The Word daily. We need God in our lives. We can’t make it without him!
