Several months ago my husband and I wanted to join a church group. First we set in the prayer church group to get ourselvesÂ acquaintedÂ with the group and we faithfully attended this group for several weeks. I took notes and listen to the input and the output of the discussions on the subject that the teacher was teaching. Â The group study topic was on "Loving Your Neighbor's": it was an hour study group. Sitting in the class I observed everything going around me and things were being said. My husband and I prayed and discuss it, if we should join the group class studies for good. For the class was a bible study that was all year around and taught good biblical lessons. Â We attended a few group classes but every time we attended the classes; there was one certain lady who would made us feel very uncomfortable and unease because of her cruel jokes that was directly pointed to my husband and I. We decided this was not the kind of group we wanted to be part of or participated in.
"Mrs. Peg., she was an unkindÂ grumpy person who made the group miserable by the words that came out of her mouth. She say things like: "I know I'm horrible, but this group is to large to be in this room, some people not naming, names should leave. She would talk over people when they try to participate in answering questions or giving their opinions on the topic that was being discuss. Ms. Peg., made a few people in the group so uncomfortable that they got up including my husband and I in the middle of the class and walked out.
New neighbors moved in our area a few weeks ago. Very nice couple who had a few children, recently just transplanted from California. I'm glad finally the house was once again full, but a few neighbors-was not very happy for they required different approach towards the new neighbors. "Only because what they hear through the grape-vine about people from that state were nothing but trouble and all that goes on in California. Some neighbor's believe that California name is: "Sin City". Some neighbor's wanted an explanation why this couple choose to move in their neck of the woods, "Why their town? Well it just happen, that the couple were missionaries who traveled all over the country to share the word about Jesus. The couple wanted to finally settle down in one place to raise their family. That explanation was not good enough for the nosy neighbors who wanted to know more about them. OneÂ particularÂ neighbor who were a young couple that lived together and had a two year old son made it so impossible for this new couple to fit in. Regardless the trouble the young couple made for them, the missionary couple refuse to let the devil over-powered them. They believe God brought them to our little town so unless God tells them otherwise and guides them in another direction the couple was staying.
In our government, the right people that resigns from the jobs, they are the honest people because they were pushed out be people who don't want the political system to work. Most famous big time actor's are judged based upon their performance, their life styles. Take for instance: Naming a few examples;whitney houston the media had a fill day with all kinds of accusations on how the way she died. You hear many rumor's through the media, how she was doing drugs and that is what killed her. It may have been true but the audience who listen to the media makes up their own accusation about whitney houston of what they hear, what was said, viewers judged whitney houston, because she was doing drugs, immediately she was a bad person. Share the good what whitney houston have done, her talent, little was said, on how much she loved the "Lord". She had a beautiful voice, a gift from God to sing praises and use to his glory. I was heart broken when I heard the news that whitney houston died. This one of many people who is in musical arts and on television.
Surprise, we are human people makes mistakes. God only know how many mistakes I made over the years. People can't help or change the color of their skin, their culture, many children goes through so much peer pressure at school because they are different which is okay and makes them special because they are the person God created them to me. Not in another student who stands out to be a bully. Â Children are being bullied because they are different in their own special ways. They are being bullied because the person may be shy, don't wear $100 dollars sneakers, or the child is not sociable and they are quiet so they toÂ themselvesÂ and are not trouble makers but these students wants to learn and make something out of themselves but when you have another who makes another life justÂ unbearable and misery and constantly being judge it makes their lives turn upside down and inside and out. It is not how the person looks or acts from the inside, it is how the person looks and acts from their hearts. God does not look at the outside appearances, he looks within the heart.
If you don't see the whole picture or read the whole presentation and justÂ skimpÂ over what you want to see or read or hear and than judge on half of the story. Remember there are two sides of the story and as they say in court: a person is innocent until found guilty. Don't point fingers or judge other's on the basis of their appearances, culture, language or rich or poor. No matter how people may seem or look, in heaven there are all kinds of cultures and different races and even rich and poor people and big and tall, little and short and skinny and fat. When we reach heaven we are gone to be one big family that will be brought together from everywhere.
