1 Timothy 2:4. since he wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

God wants all to be saved from sin and come into His knowledge of truth.  It is not limited to gender, race, culture,  economic level, social status, education, intelligence or anything else.  It is only limited to a saving knowledge through His Son, Jesus.  This knowledge is not gained for our own enrichment but for the enrichment of our relationship to God and to the rest of God’s family.  It is a knowledge to be shared in unity of love and acceptance.  Our worldly knowledge has taught us to be judgmental and selective. As we grow in God’s knowledge we will become less judgmental and more loving.  The question is are we willing to let go of our learned prejudices and allow God, through His Holy Spirit,to bring us into the unifying knowledge of His love and grace?

Through God’s Eyes

1 Corinthians 13:13.  And now these three remain:faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I was watching some interviews on TV and found myself think, He looks funny.  That person sure talks wired.”  I found I was judging people I didn’t know.  Then I realized not only did I not know them but God knows them and loves them just as much as He knows an loves me,  instead of making my own prejudicial decisions about others I need to see them and hear them through the eyes of God. He love His children and longs for them to know and love Him. As I look and listen it should be with a prayer of love to God that they know Him and love Him and if they don’t for someone to cross their path to tell them of God’s love for them – even if it’s me God wants to cross their path.  The question is are we willing to let God let us see others through His eyes and hear through His ears?  Are we willing to cross paths with them and share God’s love with them?  The greatest thing we can ever do is pass on the knowledge of God’s love.
