But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk. (Luke 12v45 NIV)
This isn’t you.
This isn’t what you are like.
You would never do such a thing.
Yet do you criticise others?
Describe them in a negative way?
Have a poor opinion of them.
Do you treat people well at work?
Or your neighbours?
He sees what you do.
He hears what you says.
He knows what you are thinking.
If God is not real to you then it doesn’t matter.
If what you say and do doesn’t matter then God is not real to you.
People can annoy, irritate, hurt and do silly things.
It is not enough to ignore them.
Be a blessing and bless them.
We have all made mistakes.
Don’t think He doesn’t care.
He thinks highly of you.
He wants you to think highly of them.
They are His creation.
He loves them even if they don’t know it.
Show them His love.
If you are still waiting He is not asleep.
If you are still waiting He is not ignoring you.
If you are still waiting He is not late or is lost somewhere.
And He loves you deeply.
Look for ways to demonstrate His love.
Look for the one person that stands out to you.
Probably the one that deserves it the least.
Do this for one person and make Him very happy.
