Bottom Line: Drop the rock.
No matter how hard we try, there’s something in each of us that
tends to hate on the flaws and failures of other people. And that’s not
necessarily a good thing because, at the end of the day, nobody likes a hater.
This week, as we look at the way Jesus responded to a group of particularly
harsh haters, we’ll see that all of us have the chance to drop the judgment and
replace it with grace.
Bottom Line: Assume the best,
and trust God with the rest.
We all tend to look at people and make some assumptions about
who they are. But when we make these assumptions, we risk missing out on the
bigger story of who someone actually is. This week, as we look at one of the
Bible’s most unlikely heroes, we’ll discover that our judgments and assumptions
are nothing compared to God’s plan and power.
Bottom Line: Even when you fail,
He’s for you.
More often than not, we hate
on ourselves more than we hate on anyone else. And when we make
mistakes, when we fail, and when we don’t measure up, the self-hate just gets
worse. Thankfully, God offers us a different way forward. This week, as we
learn to embrace the grace He offers us in all situations, we’ll
realize we can put a stop to the hate.
