Open your heart and not your eyes.


Romans 12: 14 -15

There is more to the eye than one can see.

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

Blessing someone in spite of them being ‘them’ comes only in ‘love’. Love does not show us RIGHT neither it tells us the WRONG. It only shows what it is and what it can be.

We may react to most circumstances in ways we think is right. The rightness and wrongness of anything is decided by us because we judge. Who are we to judge any man? Or even their actions for that matter. Who are we to question their character or their ability to go about doing the right? Who decides?

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:3)

And if we have not learned this mystery of the Kingdom of God, we will never understand the true love of Jesus who even after looking at the woman at the well questioned her not with judgment but with introspection on her own self. Introspection within with the help of the Holy Spirit moves mountains and helps one plant a mustard seed in the heart of the one who is ready to change and be Paul. But why do we stand judging Saul? We need to work towards helping others not to change but stand with them on the road to Damascus. It is easy to show people the direction but the man who sows the seed about Jesus needs to also help in watering and taking care of it.

For the harvest is great, but the workers are few. (Matthew 9:37)
