You know what bugs me? Christians that are always looking for any little excuse to tear people down. And they won’t just get over themselves and lovingly accept that we’re all imperfect. Thank God you aren’t that way. Except… I’ll bet you sometimes judge yourself like that. (Bam! see what I did there?) You’ll look at a flaw in yourself and obsess over it, but on someone else you’d say, “don’t be mean, the extra weight looks good on her, it fills out her face”. What the heck? What’s your dang deal?
I’ll bet you barely know the awesome things you bring to the table, because you’re so focused on your “flaws”. And Lord help ya if you’re waiting for a member of the opposite sex to come along and fix all this. Grab aholt of yer noggin and pull it outta yer butt cheeks and look around! Self pity is boring, your giftedness (when you frickin’ use it) is exciting! God gave you something special that can change the world. I dunno what it is, dang, do I have to figure everything out? I’m just sayin’, you’ve got it, just figure out how to bring glory to the Kingdom with it.
Let’s say all you can do is bake cookies, well dang, take homemade cookies down to your local 12-step program and tell them you’ve got their back and hang in there, and see if that ain’t a game changer! But ya gotta stop judging on yourself. The apostle Paul said: “I care very little if I am judged by you… I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.” So change the things God puts on your conscience, forget the stuff you made up that you think needs to be fixed, and know that it’s about serving God with our gifts, and casting off everything that hinders that. You might just be a simple clay pot, but you’ve got a treasure inside you. So don’t make me pull over.
