Seeking to understand the pain in someone’s heart gives Love and Compassion right from the start for Jesus will draw them close to His side when in Kindness and Care in His Love we abide.
With a critical spirit if I judge others and hate them for what I see, sadly it is a reflection of what is in me, have I walked in their shoes or have I felt their pain judging without Love only leads to our shame.
So in Love we take time to show them we care warning them of the things that cause them to stray, helping them to see that God’s way is best and that it’s in repentance and forgivness they will find His Peace and Rest.
Yet we are to share God’s truth in word and deed so their hearts will be set free but with their sinful actions we do not agree, for if we look the other way in bondage they will continue to be unless saved before death for Eternity but a wasted Life it will be.
We don’t judge others thinking we are right and pushing them away, or it may be us who needs compassion one day, but in fellowship we cannot share with those who sin and seek their own way because God tells us to beware of those who do not obey.
Loving even our enemies we pray for their souls for deep in their hearts they may be seeking someone to care, so willing we are to be showing Jesus’ kindness and concern and that His love doesn’t have to be earned, but we warn that sin keeps them apart from His Loving heart.
How often the burden that others bear would be lifted if in Love with them we did share, giving Jesus comfort to the weary and those going astray for He never gives up or casts them away, but if they continue to sin with Him they cannot stay, so if asked He gives them the strength to cast sin away.
Knowing His redeemed Children right from the start and in Eternity we will always have a place in His Heart.
For Jesus is the beginning and the end of each day.
