Be Patient With Each Other
“Don’t grumble about each other, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. For look—the Judge is standing at the door!” James 5:9 NLT
It is so easy to grumble and complain about others. There is always something that we can find fault with concerning someone else. Their clothes don't match, their hair isn't combed, their car is dirty, they didn't say that right, they cheer for the wrong team (especially if they are a Duke fan - ha 😂- I had to say that Y'all). Laying the picking aside, we are prone to grumbling and complaining. May I remind us all that the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness for forty years because of their grumbling and complaining.
Today, may God help us to be quick to magnify the strengths of others and minimize their weaknesses. Rather than grumble and complain, ask God to help you recognize your own insufficiencies and faults. “Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” Ephesians 4:2 NLT
