People Are Different

It Is Written, 1 John 4:7, beloved, let us love one another;  for love is of God;  and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
We go through our daily lives seeing how many people act.  They can be coworkers, they can be strangers on the street, that doesn't matter, we just observe them.  Some people do things that we don't agree with, and we do things that other people don't agree with.  There are many instructions or commandments in the Bible that are difficult to keep.  One of the toughest tells us not to judge others.
Every person on earth does what they do for a reason.  Most people do not even realize what they are doing.  In this message, we won't discuss terrorists are mass murderers, just ordinary people.
People have a comfort zone.  Basically what this means is, most people have a tendency to do things and to think in the way they were brought up. It doesn't matter which rung of the success ladder people are on, they still have a tendency to do what they are comfortable with.  The problem is this type of thing can get so embedded in a person's mind, that they just repeat what people before them did, without giving it any thought.
I would guess that most of us, are considered normal by the standards of the world. We react to circumstances. If things are going good, we have a tendency to be friendly, even helpful at times.  On the other hand if there is a serious illness in the family or any number of other things that can go wrong, we may get depressed, or crabby, hard to get along with, or sometimes just quiet.
The point of the story is, we all face things that have an influence on what and how we get along with other people.  The truth is none of us is any better or worse than anyone else.  We all have our faults, even though we sometimes don't realize it.  One of those faults, is to judge the actions of others.  The Bible tells us not to judge lest we be judged.  One way to look at it, is if we judge someone else, we are basically telling the creator, that He messed up when He made that person, because that person does not measure up to what we think they should be.
If you want to walk in happiness, peace, less stress, then do what the Bible says, do not judge others.  If we must judge someone, we should judge ourselves.  Have a blessed day.  Praise Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
