The other day a friend posted this on facebook and in the past few days I've seen it posted a lot. I posted it on my ig. At first I read this and thought...yeah, whatever. But then you know that moment when God tugs on your heart and says I'm trying to tell you something.
So I re-read that.
And got it.
Well at least what I needed to get in that moment.
First thing I think about is gay people, because most of the time this quote
"Hate the sin love the sinner"
is in reference to gay people.
But what about
Christians who watch porn in the privacy of their home
Cheat on their spouse
Cuss people out in their heads
Belittle their children
Being gay is not the ultimate sin.
We tend to get blurry-eyed and see sin so much different than God views our sins.
To us we tend to put sins on levels
but with God sin is sin.
I tend to get so caught up in trying to make people see the truth. Before it was prideful. Ugh...something I struggle with on a daily basis. This terrible belief that because I am a christian and have never cheated on my husband I must be above. That thinking, that toxic, that comes from Satan. Satan knows us as well as God, don't ever forget that.
I tend to ignore my faults.... Yep, I'm that lady that cusses you out in my head when you cut me off while driving, I will tell a little white lie and tell you everything is ok when I'm crying inside, I scream and yell mean things to my husband.
I am not perfect
I will never be perfect
To God my sins are as great as any other person.
And this got me thinking. You know when you are exhausting yourself trying to get someone to become a christian, to change their ways. Why exhaust yourself?? When God leads you speak but unless He leads you just pray and pray and pray and pray.
