We Want To Play God

Everyday I have to remind myself that I am not God and that judgement does not belong to me. It is hard and before you know it, you judge. You judge because you either feel hurt by someone else's actions or feel that judgement does not come upon the wicked. You do not want to forgive because you feel they don't deserve it.

Who are we to decide who is wicked and who isn't? Everybody is formed by circumstances, parents, bad decisions and sometimes even other people's bad decisions. Hurt people hurt. It is a wicked cycle and a vicious one.

You look at an act and then you want to condemn that person but what if it was your brother, mother, father or even closes friend who did something evil and despicable? Would you cast them away in an instance? I would like to think that is how God feels about us.

We are his children and this wicked and cruel world does things to us that hurts so bad you want to hurt others. He sees it but He can only help those who come to Him. Would He choose one child over the other? I do not think so. Would you as a parent save one and not the other even though you know the one is good and the other one not? No. We have hope. We have love. We believe in chances.

It is such an insignificant word yet it is the most powerful emotions. Love is patient, love is kind, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not.

I would like to think that it is because God gave us love that we have hope, because God has hope in our outcome that He believes in us. We should stop trying to play God and rather pray that each person who hurts us will experience His love and mercy. Imagine that. That is the only place where there is true healing.
