Matthew 7:1-6

Tonight at church I saw some people who didn't fit in. The guy had his lip pierced and was wearing a Raiders jacket. Our church is more of a clean cut, lacoste type of church. So this guy stood out pretty big. My first thought was "isn't that great that we are reaching people across socioeconomic boundaries". I had made several assumptions about him:

  1. he is poor

  2. he is a new christian

  3. he had a "hard" life

Probably none of these are true. It's sad that I think they are, though. I mean, it's great that I didn't go "who let in the trash?", but my presumptions about this young man were still there. I hope one day I can get past all of my judging and just let people be who they are and let Jesus make the call.
