The Problem of Partiality
Series: FAITH DOES
Aren’t you glad that you can’t read the minds of others regarding what they think about you? And what if others could read your mind regarding what you think about them?
The reality is that for every negative or critical thought you have about some of the people around you, there are also people who have equally negative thoughts about you. Even if you are a Christ-follower, there is just something within each of us that causes us to jump to conclusions about certain people. We are quick to categorize and judge – and often for incredibly shallow, trivial, or illogical reasons.
If we want to have a faith that works, we need to embrace a different path: seeing people through God’s eyes and honoring those that we have a tendency to judge. That’s what this week’s message is all about.
