People often say we don’t give to “get’ and that is true. However, in Matthew 7,
Jesus said, Judge not lest you be judged, “and what measure” of judgment you measure will be measured back to you. Judgment is not an opinion on something, judgement is a DECISION. Think about this for a minute. It’s a decision, how you respond, or what you do about it. When a Judge pronounces a sentence he has made a decision. He may not like the person in front of him, but he (hopefully) Makes a decision based on the whole truth, not just part of the truth.
When someone is driving too fast in bad weather it’s called “a bad judgement” ….therefore, doing unto others as we would have done unto us, is also in this category of Judgments (decisi…ons based on what we believe about a person or situation).
so Love makes righteous Judgements (decisions), as we are led by the Holy Spirit. So if you wish to be listened to, listen. If you hope to be strengthened in faith, give that too. If you want to be encouraged, encourage others as well. Give what you would like to receive, no matter what others are doing. A worthy goal? Yes?

I was that "unpopular" wierdo kid, that didn't fit in anywhere, in High School. I guess I never knew my place in life, until Jesus took me in. I've been rejected, misunderstood, left out, bullied, abused, scandalized, and labeled. In 2002 I got on a bus and left a marraige of sixteen years, that was fraught with abuse and heartache. In school, I used to be so afraid to stand in front of the class and speak, my hands woud visibily shake, and I could not look at my audience without being terrified.
Years later, I find myself leading a school music production, speaking in front of churches, and walking around with confidence, because I know the King of Kings is at my side.
My ministry, prayers and blogs are directed toward those who feel like they were never enough. You never fit in.
If I can help you in any way, if you need a special speaker to speak hope to the hurting, or if you would like a copy of my Testimony book (Grace to the Rescue) let me know. I am here for you. I also have a new book out "Confidence".
With Love, Laura
