What is God teaching me right now? He is teaching me that people are much more important than things. Things are temporary...people are not. That my reaction to different situations will clearly show where my love walk is. How? For instance, kid throws up all over the carpet. Is my focus on the carpet...or on the kid who isn't feeling well? An ambulance goes screaming by. Is my concern for the person being rushed away..,,or on the fact that I am being slowed down. A child is misbehaving in the store, restaurant...do I show some compassion towards the parents...or am I throwing judgement their way. The person in front of me is taking FOREVER in the grocery line...am I patient or flipping out. If I go out to eat, am I treating the waiter/waitress with love and respect or demanding my way and complaining the whole time how bad a job they are doing? Do I make people look good, even if they don't deserve it?
Our lives are a series of tests that really reflect what is on the inside of us. If we are constantly reacting to situations and throwing innocent people under the bus, we just aren't walking in the love of Christ.
This is what God has been showing me and desiring me to change... LOVE people first and foremost.
