Love Lifted Me

God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.  1 Samuel 16:7
How often do we look at someone and judge them by their appearance?  We can all say that we don't but guess what, we all do.  We question why is that person homeless, why do they treat their family that way, why do they eat the way they do, why don't they take a shower, why do they live the way they do, and the list goes on and on.  We choose to judge them by their appearance, come on now you know you do, and wonder why they could let their lives get that way.  What we should be doing is looking into their heart.  Have you ever thought about how someone thinks of you?  All of us are quick to judge not knowing the circumstances of some one's life.  Remember none of us are without sin and should not be judging how someone else lives their life.  What we should be doing is loving others the way Jesus loves us.
Love Lifted Me
by James Rowe, 1912
I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more,
But the Master of the sea, hear my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.
Love lifted me!  Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me!
This song brings me great comfort for without the love of Christ how lost would I be.
