Change Me…

As human beings we are very quick to be judgmental of others. We can easily see what someone in doing wrong.  We readily notice a person’s flaws and short comings, without taking an inventory of our own flaws and imperfections. The Bible has something to say about that.

Matthew 7:3-5

New International Version (NIV)

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Before we begin to judge others, we must first look at ourselves and ask God to change anything in us that is not pleasing to Him. I believe we will all be surprised by how much God finds. Our only responsibility, during the process of God changing us, is to keep our eyes on Him.

Psalm 51:7-12

New International Version (NIV)

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness;
    let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins
    and blot out all my iniquity.

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
    and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from your presence
    or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
    and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Our prayer for each day: Father God, please search my heart. If you find anything that needs to be changed, I give you permission to do what you have to do for your will to be done in my life. You are the Potter and I am the clay.
