What I read today

Ezra 3; Job 19; Jonah 3; Acts 3; James 3-4

We tend to like to think we’re better than others.  Truth is most of the time that’s a defense mechanism.  We know we’ve failed, so we point out the failures of others to make ourselves feel better.  The problem is that we never build anyone up by tearing someone else down.

That’s why James tells us to not speak evil against one another.  That’s hard sometimes because the way some people behave can give us an easy target.

We need to remember that we are no better.  We’re all God’s children working towards heaven.
