“It’s your fault…no, it’s your fault…it’s his fault…no it’s his/her fault…”
These are words that are spoken everyday in our home…and I am sure they are spoken everyday in your homes as well. These words may not always be spoken out loud…sometimes they are whispered…sometimes they are only thoughts. The words spoken may not sound exactly as written above…but the motivation behind the words spoken is the same…to direct attention to the faults…or flaws…of another.
I don’t know about you…but it is fairly easy for me to notice areas in another person’s character that need to be worked on. And…not too surprisingly…my children have all inherited this talent from me In fact…I had one day this past week when all 3 of my older boys became keenly aware of each others’ faults at the same time…and considering that 1 of those 3 lives all the way in Colorado I would say that we have some real talent going here
To make 3 long conversations short…I will simply tell you what God laid upon my heart as I prayed my way through these conversations…
Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Our hearts and characters should be constantly surrendered to God so that this scripture becomes Truth in our lives…and our Fasting and Praying should be tools that ushers in this transforming by the Spirit of the Lord. And…as we begin to see our own flesh…in all its sinfulness…I pray God helps us to have a little more empathy and compassion for the people we are faulting.
