Focus on the good

While in line to check out at the grocery store the elderly woman in front of me was conversing with a teenager. She was a heavy set granny with a nose ring and tattoos sitting on the battery operated shopping chair. The young man was explaining that he needed cigarettes too as he placed the” malt liquor” on the counter and his way too baggy pants nearly fell to the ground. Granny flipped out her Lonestar card and I was beginning to think quite a few things when I stopped… Instead I began to think about all the times I have been hurt by the unfair judgments of others who have no clue about me or my life. I quietly bowed my head and asked God to forgive me. Then I purposefully noticed this teen who had driven this elderly woman to the grocery store and assisted her with her grocery shopping.

Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable…-Philippians 4:8

Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. -Matthew 7:1-2

Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. –Luke 6:37

**This was an “On This Day” from my retired Facebook page. Y’all wouldn’t believe how many ugly messages I got when I posted this. I was even “unfriended” by a lady from my Bible Study group. Lol. Thank God I am now free from the bondage of the expectations of others.

One thought on “Focus on the good

  1. I like this story and I like and luv people for who they are. I have friends who are gay, bi, transgender and …….. I don’t care. All I care is that you treat me right and I’ll treat you the same. I believe in humans, not what or who they are or want to be. Everyone should try to accept people for who and what they are and the world would be a much better place. Everyone needs to talk to God. God does NOT DISCRIMINATE AT ALL. God luvs everyone as they are, no matter who or what everyone what’s to be and who everyone is. Everyone has feelings and the World should STOP!! Being so UGLY. Try to be more understanding. EVERYONE NEEDS LUV, UNDERSTANDING and FRIENDS. God Bless Everyone in the World 🌍 and the Universe.
