Judge Less, Love More

A dog and a kitten rub noses
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.—Proverbs 3:3 (NIV)
Everyone knows you can’t judge a book by its cover, yet sometimes rushed judgements are made that aren’t backed up by the right information. The next time you are about to place a negative label on someone, stop for a moment and look for the Christ in them. See the good and extend a kind word.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, help me choose loving thoughts. Guide me to compassion and away from criticism, so that I may walk humbly beside You.
