One way grace.
There’s a lot of it in our world.
I’m talking about when we say, “I deserve a pass when I mess up,” then want to throw the book at everyone else.
Did you know that Jesus actually said that the standard we use with others, is the one that will be used on us?
“For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.”
– Matthew 7:2
This has radically changed the way I live my life.
When I began to really listen to the Holy Spirit and acknowledge the shortcomings in my life, I had no time to worry about the speck in their eye. I was busy working on the 2×4 sticking out of mine.
