We can so quickly mis-judge someone's salvation because they spoke a curse word… or drank alcohol… or slipped in one way or another. Do we expect all Christians to walk a religious tight rope perfectly and never once stumble? Do we walk perfectly? 1 Samuel 16:7 says, "The Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart." We need to ‘see’ others as Jesus sees them… we need to ‘love’ those around us like Jesus loves them… and we need to let God do the rest. Live in God’s love. Look at other people through God’s lenses of love. This is how you walk in the light of His love… this is what pleases God. Maturity takes time. We should not judge a person’s total character based on one action. Instead of jumping to conclusions… & expecting instantaneous perfection… focus on loving… excepting… encouraging… and allow God to love through you!!!
