Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.
— Romans 14:13 (NKJV)
There are many things you can’t do, but there are also a lot of things you can do, and do well. You don’t have to compare yourself or your abilities and accomplishments with others’—you are free to follow God’s plan for your life.
Each of us need to live in the liberty of being led by the Holy Spirit, knowing that we have the right to make our own mistakes and learn from them. If you allow other people to become like a law to you, thinking you have to be like them, you’re robbing yourself of your God-given freedom. In the same way, you must not judge others or expect them to be like you.
Decide today to enjoy the liberty of living in God’s will, and allow those around you to live in that freedom, too.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for giving me the freedom to make mistakes, to learn, and to grow. Help me to live in that freedom more and more every day, and to give those around me that same freedom. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
