The only reason we can’t understand why people do the things they do, is because we’re not trying to understand; instead we’re deciding to judge.
It happens so quickly, we don’t even realize we’re doing it. The judgment is, how could you do something like that when? Put yourself in those shoes and understand the feelings that they’re dealing with. I’m sure you’ve dealt with the same feelings at some point in-time, but with different circumstances.
To offer understanding is to Love. It takes patience and kindness, is not envious or boastful, proud or rude. It’s not easily angered (emphasis on easily), and keeps no record of wrongs (forgives). It does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. I saved this for last because it’s my favorite: it’s not self-seeking. ( 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4 )
Do you find yourself pointing out other people’s flaws for self-serving reasons? Truthfully examine our behavior to see if Love is what we feel. You can’t fake it for the eyes of society; God reveals all things. If we truly Love, we should be able to understand.
The Truth is the medicine, apply it, and I know we can heal.
I love y’all
