But wait, don’t we as Christians have the same problem? How often have I gone before God and complained because I didn’t feel I was being treated fair. I am just like my children! I run to God and tell Him about other people’s problems. I have so many improvements I need to make on myself I shouldn’t be concerned about someone else’s spiritual walk with God.
"Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners-of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life." (1 Timothy 1: 15-16) I am so thankful that God has “unlimited patience” with me. My prayer today is that I will try to be more like God so that my children see Jesus’ love in me. Instead of plugging my ears, I will listen, and I will teach. Lord help me to love like You.
