So I was inspired last night by the show “I am a Killer” on Netflix. I know that sounds so crazy! Ok, maybe not inspired but it made me think a lot about people and how they operate according to their up bringing. It made me think that maybe there is more to these people than what actually meets the eye. My Fiancé and I were watching it together and it was honestly a really good discussion starter. The fact of the matter is, we all judge based on what people do, which makes perfect sense. An action can say everything about who that person is and kind of gives us a general idea on if we would want them in our lives or not.
I have been trying a new thing, and that is not to judge a person by what they do (their actions). Very hard considering they just cut me off in traffic. Isn’t this the most frustrating time of your day? Driving home from work and all you want to do is go home and RELAX with your dog? or even your cat? When people make bad decisions on the road, you totally go straight to “what a moron”. Well when we say that we aren’t actually saying that HE or SHE as a person is a moron, because we do not know anything about that person. We are actually saying their action was moronic. Which makes sense. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen someone give the finger to another driver with such anger. Deep down this really has always bothered me. Now don’t get me wrong, I most definitely have wanted to do this myself but my heart and soul would not let me do it. I know that is my Holy Spirit speaking through me. I know that sometimes I often feel bad for even having a thought that is not right. I finally have stopped beating myself up about it and came to terms that it is NOT what goes through your mind, it is WHAT YOU DO with that thought that went through your mind.
I am here to tell you that even the strongest Christian have bad thoughts.
I want you to know that God always gives us a way out of committing a sin. There is ALWAYS A WAY OUT. This is when we stay in constant communication with Him. We pray that God gives us the patience and softens our heart to get us out of a situation that we may regret down the road. Or to even help the thoughts that are nothing but evil.
I am going to end it here, There is always a story behind every person you come into contact with. They have felt feelings of all sorts just like we do. Instead of being quick to judge, maybe we pray for them instead. Nothing beats angry thoughts more than knowing what God has done for us through His Son Jesus. His perfect son paid the price for all of our bad doings. Lets rest in that and be more in tune with God during the times of frustration instead of running from Him.
