Keep a Balanced Perspective
The more you look up to God, the less you will look down on people.
Have you ever noticed how poorly people treat each other? We’ve all been there. We’ve all said something disparaging about another driver who cuts us off in traffic. We’ve all read an article about some unfortunate soul and said, “He got what he deserved.”
Why are we so quick to look down on other people? Is it because there’s no other way to make ourselves feel better? That can’t be it, because when it comes to others, the only way to improve our lives is to help them.
No, we think it has more to do with God. The less time we spend learning to know God and what He wants us to do, the more time we have to criticize others. On the other hand, the more we invite God into the details of our lives, the more likely we will be to encourage and lift up other people rather than tear them down.
Live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ. Ephesians 5:2
