Missing God’s Best Gifts  

January 30
Daily Reading – Exodus 13-14 / Matthew 19:16-30

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Matthew 19:30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Once at a church I was in the group was asked if someone would read a passage of scripture for the class. An older man raised his hand. He was not dressed very well, smelt of cigarettes, was not shaven and his hair was a mess. Looking at him, my first thought was, oh no, this passage has a lot of big Hebrew names with which this poor old guy is really going to struggle. Then he opened his mouth and read with a beautiful loud clear tone, pronouncing every word with distinction. I was immediately ashamed of my thoughts toward him and asked God to forgive me.

    How many times do we, not meaning to, judge someone on appearance and form a wrong opinion.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Could we be missing the best gifts from God?
