All God Wants You to Do Is What You Can Do

Criticism that leads to improvement can be good. But judgment that belittles and tears down is simply destructive. Unfortunately, however, we seem to live smack dab in the middle of a culture of judgment that encourages people to be judge, jury and executioner. You see it all too often, have been its victim and perhaps even have engaged in it yourself. And that’s why God wants you to do something for God’s sake: refuse to take your cue from the culture of judgment and, instead, take it from God who leads with love. Not just mushy sentimental love. But love that starts where people are and takes them where God wants them to be. You may only be one person. And you may wonder what difference you can make. But when all is said and done, all God wants you to do is what you can do.
