I’m not a fan of the saying “there’s always two sides to every story”. As if to say “once I hear both sides then I can make up my mind on whose side I’m on or who was right and who is wrong?” but who are we to make such judgements?
“He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her” – John 8:7.
I no longer want to go around making people feel guilty for their wrongs because they probably already feel bad enough as it is. Lord knows I do when I FINALLY realise and accept that I am. Sometimes the guilt can eat you alive and you feel so isolated and alone. Your thoughts become toxic, your enviornment is polluted and your life starts to deteriorate. I know, because I’ve been there. But I can tell you with 100% certainty that without God placing the right people around me, those who know Jesus and are forgiving, understanding and compassionate through my tears and shame, I probably wouldn’t be here to share this journey with you all.
So I ask you my sisters and brothers to be be slow to anger, and quick to help. If they don’t want your help then just pray for their soul that one day Jesus will become their goal. Lead by your actions, not by your words. We can’t embrace others when our fingers are pointing at them with shame, we got to release the stones in our hands for we are all guilty in the eyes of Jehovah.
What’s the point of being right about a person who has nothing left? who has no one to turn to. Be a helping hand, not a pointing finger!
