A powerful Facebook post offers
a big lesson about judgment.
Caroline Bologna gives us a story that speaks volumes to changing basic human behavior...gossip. It also touches on this blogs vision and call to be more Christ-like in the way we meet and get to know people.
It's a quick, feel-good story and a great reminder for us all to take the little extra time to get to know someone before we judge them. Thank you to Huffington Post for running it. Read the story here:
On a similar note, John's gospel tells two great stories of Jesus. Read about Jesus meeting a woman at the well (John 4:1-30) and a woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11). In both you'll discover how he teaches us how to break taboos and gives us guidance for understanding how our judgement and traditions are often at odds with the Kingdom of God and the love that brings people together instead of pulling us apart.
