Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
“When we see everyone is a part of us,
that any criticism we make is self-criticism,
we will extend to ourselves an unconditional love
that will light the world” (Harry Palmer).
The Bible, in Genesis 1:27-28, gives us the account of
creation, the time when God created Adam and Eve in His image. Shortly
thereafter, man, through sin, messed it up. Then, in Genesis 6-8 (just 8
generations from Adam), God, through the flood, again reduced us to one family.
So any time we are tempted to criticize or to make fun of another race or
person with infirmities, we must remind ourselves: "This is my
God, thank You for my family. Help me to encourage, not
to criticize, my extended brothers and sisters. Amen.
In GOD we Trust!
