Great Expectations


We hear the saying all the time that we should not judge others.  I’d like to add to that for just a moment.  Not only should we not judge others, but we must stop looking at others to find perfection.  In other words, stop having such big expectations of other people.  Instead of putting high demands on other people and expecting them to be something they are not or do something they cannot, put those demands on yourself.

Acknowledge areas that you are weak in and work on them. Acknowledge areas that you are strong in and strengthen them even more. It is not fair to people for others to always put such lofty demands on them. We all have issues in life.  The way you handle these issues is what makes you unique and different.  Or at least it should.  If everyone got it in his or her mind to focus on self, this thing called life would be so much better.

Matthew 7:3 NLT “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?”

Let Your Character Speak on your Behalf


There has to come a point in your life where your character speaks for you.  People are going to always have something to say and that’s ok.  Those who really know you, know your character and therefore won’t believe everything they hear.  Those who don’t know you should be mature enough not to believe everything they hear.  Do not worry about defending yourself against the words of other people.  Let your actions speak for themselves.  Hence the phrase, actions speak louder than words!

Matthew 5:16 ESV “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
