If God is willing to REASON with us, how dare we not reason with one another…
If God is willing to FORGIVE us, how dare we not forgive one another…
If God is PATIENT with us, how dare we be impatient with one another…
If God LOVES us unconditionally, how dare we place conditions on one another…
Because how we treat one another, is actually how we treat Him.
Isaiah 1:18 (ESV)
18 “Come now, let us reason[a] together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
Ephesians 4:32 (ESV)
32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Romans 5:8N (NKJV)
8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 2:4 (NKJV)
4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
Matthew 25: 40,45 (ESV)
40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’
