8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. -Romans 5:8
God’s been teaching me to never judge a person by their cover. It’s so easy to judge people isn’t it? “That person never went to college” “That person will never be a great leader” “They need help” “At best they’ll do _____ with their lives.” “They don’t have what it takes.” I often wonder what God is thinking when He hears us say these things about His kids!
God is the master at taking someone who the world deems worthless and doing unbelievable things in and through their lives. Why? Because God sees greatness in every living human being. Including YOU!
The Bible said that Jesus died for us while we were still sinners. We were absolutely worthless to God, but He saw greatness in us, He made a plan for our lives, He put gifts within us, and sent His Son to die so we could fellowship with Him. I’m so glad He didn’t judge me by my cover. It gives me hope for my future!
However, millions of people never hear what God says about them. Millions everyday hear people judging them based on who they are or what they’ve done, and sadly it’s often from Christians. When we judge people and fail to see them through God’s eyes, we will destroy Hope in their lives.
Let’s quit judging people and start lifting them. Stop judging people by their cover. See every person with the potential God sees in them. If we do, we’ll free them up to be who God called them to be and do what God called them to do!
People need us to see them as God sees them!
