When the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, He would know who is touching Him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.” (Luke 7v39 NIV)
We judge people externally and believe some are more deserving than others.
What He looks for is on the inside.
We judge only what we can see and hear externally.
He is often never that impressed with our version of righteousness.
What criteria do you judge people on?
Now ask Him how He sees people.
When you ask Him what He sees in people, take note of what He says.
He will describe them quite different to how you do.
Ask Him about specific people and see what He says and compare with your opinion of them.
Then change your attitude and have His thoughts instead.
See the gold in people not just their faults.
Entertain His thoughts only.
