“Before you leave I want to ask you one more question. When you were walking around the church, did you see anyone gossiping?”
She told him, “no.”
Then he asked if she’d spotted any hypocrites, or come across anyone on their phones.
Again the woman replied, “no.”
Then the pastor offered up this perspective-shattering, thought-provoking analogy that would leave even some nonbelievers shouting “amen.”
“You were focused on the glass, to make sure you didn’t stumble and spill any water. It’s the same with our life. When we keep our eyes on Jesus, we don’t have time to see the mistakes of others. We will reach out a helping hand to them and concentrate on our own walk with the Lord.”
And that my friends, is worthy of a mic-drop.
