Lazaroo – Saturday, December 15, 2012

Dec 15, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in full-blown repentance and humility:

“You should not look down on your brother…”
(Obadiah 1:12)

I absolutely agree with that statement, Jesus:

I should not look down on my brother.

But to my horror
again and again and again

I disobey that principle.

Why?!!!

Why do I persist in demeaning
one of the people You died for

as surely as You did for me?

What in the world makes me think I can get away with such detestable thoughts?

Of all people
who am I to judge?!!!

Am I not aware that the only reason I’m even drawing my next breath

is because of Your incomprehensible mercy
to the totally unworthy?

How dare I look down on anyone You’ve chosen?

Don’t I realize I’m sowing dangerous seed?

Don’t I realize I’m tempting those who have no clue how hard I’m trying
how great the obstacles I’m attempting to overcome

to look down on me?
