Ephesians 2:8-10     “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

Devotional Thought for Today:  It is easy to judge anyone – there are enough faults to go around…seeing someone only through my particular paradigms.  But…living each day and seeing everyone as a child of God, created in His image, while hard to do many times, is what I think we are called to do.  Can we see the homeless…those of different color…those of different ethnicity…those of different political persuasion…those who prefer a different kind of music…those who don’t dress the same as I…you get the point…those different from myself…those different from you.  Seeing individuals first as children of God rather than some other criteria can help me to be more compassionate…more responsive…less judgmental and prejudiced.  What about you?
