Arguably the most beautiful thing about the Gospel is it’s consistency.
When I don’t feel like it’s true, it still is-
When I don’t feel clean. When I don’t feel like I belong. When I don’t feel accepted. When I don’t feel loved. I am.
Do you ever just read your bible to read it out of love for your Father rather than to find doctrinal and theological truths? Do you ever just read it to be captivated by his love that is displayed in his word?
Here’s the deal:
A lot of my friends do some things that aren’t exactly, …. good things and I find myself wanting to tell them that they shouldn’t be that way or do this or whatever, but I don’t want to be judgmental.
What do you guys think?
Rebuking those you love isn’t necessarily being judgmental. Judgment can be justified if the plank in your own eye has been removed (Matthew 7:4-5). Besides, if you’re calling them out for something that is harming them, isn’t it worth it to get them out than to watch them fall?
I hope that helped! God bless.
Oh oh oh

“You talked to me of love, gave me small gifts every day; this is just one of them. The key to the heart. You turned my head; you just did not want to sleep with me. I realized how much you loved me only after you died of AIDS.”
