SPRING FORTH NOW 2023
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
God’s outpouring to us, not just in physical blessings, but also in His mercy and compassion toward us must serve as an impetus for our giving to others in generosity. Our generosity can not be measured by what is comfortable or acceptable but instead by our willingness to sacrifice, to be generous not just in things but in giving space for others to work through their life’s challenges. It is in our willingness to model the behavior God has shown us, His loving patience with us and our ways so that we would receive His impression upon our minds in which we Visioneer our pathway from destruction to life and life more abundantly promised. Understanding the bountiful mercies and compassion God has shared with us enlarges our ability to help others to also Visioneer from roads of destruction that allow for them to be reconciled to His promises. Our job is not to make people choose but be generous in our mercy and compassion so that they can choose God’s intent for their lives, to live, move and have their being in a Most Favored Status.
