2018 MAR 14- Romans 2:3
Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? (ESV) https://www.bible.com/bible/59/ROM.2.3
Today, I felt a bit weird. Maybe it was the way I tried to hard in the morning and then got humbled by the end of the day.
When I got to the verse above. I thought about the hypocrite that I am.. Not that I am judging others for that I will save for another day. Rather, the act of doing something that you wouldn’t want to be done to you. Oh, I think we are all hypocritical on some level about somethings. For me, I think the root is somebody tugging me.
My only saving Grace is that I am aware that all my actions are not invisible. I will not escape the judgment of God. I just hope God is lenient and loving.
John Mayer is a lyricist that I have enjoyed throughout his career. His words really touch my soul. In the Edge of Desire, he sings:
Don’t say a word, just come over and lie here with me
‘Cause I’m just about to set fire to everything I see
I want you so bad I’ll go back on the things I believe
There I just said it, I’m scared you’ll forget about me
I am human. I make mistakes. I’ll admit it.
Thanks be to God for forgiveness.
