Luke 6:37 "Judge not, and you will not judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven." (ESV) Sounds logical. Sounds practical. Sound like good advice. Sounds really hard!! Friends this means - everybody- we don't get to pick who we forgive. We don't get to pick who we will not judge or condemn. This scripture calls us to give grace to everybody! Yep, even the one at work who cheated you out of that promotion. Yep, even the one who told everyone your secret. Yep, even the one who hurt your child. All inclusive. Everybody. And we can't do this at all without Jesus. Jesus, the one who came to show us all love and grace by humble example. Jesus, the one who gave everything that he had to take the judgement away from each of us. Only Jesus.
