November 17, 2011 2 Corinthians 7-10

S: 2 Cor 10:7(k): Do you look at things according to the outward appearance?

O: This scripture goes on to discuss belonging to Christ. If we belong to Him, we are His – inside and out – we are His servants and disciples.

A: Yes, I do look at things according to outward appearance, unfortunately, more than I should. I, as well as many others, make up our minds about things and people just by looking on the outside. Thank goodness God doesn’t! He looks at things from the inside – our hearts, our minds, our souls. He doesn’t care if my clothes are the latest style or from the past; He doesn’t care if I am a former anything, only that I care about Him, am willing to serve and be His disciple, growing and learning His ways. I look at things according to my authority – which is zero, but I still do it. The reality is I’m wrong in doing so – I need to look through the heart of Christ’s love.

P: Father, forgive me. I am human and weak and judgmental. May I share your love and acceptance with others, regardless of what reality I think I see.
