At that time John’s disciples came and asked Jesus, “Why do we and the Pharisees frequently fast, but your disciples never fast?” Jesus responded, “The wedding guests can’t mourn while the groom is still with them, can they? But the days will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they’ll fast. “No one sews a piece of new, unshrunk cloth on old clothes because the patch tears away the cloth and makes a worse tear. No one pours new wine into old wineskins. If they did, the wineskins would burst, the wine would spill, and the wineskins would be ruined. Instead, people pour new wine into new wineskins so that both are kept safe.” (Matthew 9:14-17, CEB)
Do you look at others and wish you did what they do? Or wonder why they do what they do when you don’t do that?
There are so many things the scriptures tell us to do and ways to do them. And yet it seems as many people as there are there are that many ways to do something.
People asked Jesus why his followers didn’t do what other teachers were telling their followers to do. It is like judging someone else for sinning differently than you.
We are all walking a road and journeying toward the kingdom. We will all get there, and yet our journeys will be different.
Do not judge yourself based on someone else. Focus your life on God and follow where God leads you.
Loving People. Loving God.
