Judge I Am

My wife Claire and I decided to drive from Denver to Kansas City for our first year wedding anniversary, and it was quite a trip. Driving through Kansas was like driving in a different world. So simple and flat. Lots of land and farming stuff. So I figured Kansas City was this small dinky town with many backward things. I was totally wrong. When we got to Kansas City, it was so modern and clean. Every convenience you can think of was there like Costco, Home Depot, etc. It really surprised and shocked me. I was thinking back driving there that I would see outhouses and barns with a lot of hay all over the place. I make a pre-judgment, and it was totally wrong.

Sometimes in life I think we do this. We sort of make a snap judgment on things and it turns out to be opposite of what we think. We look at this run down quaint little restaurant but yet the food is good and the people are quite friendly. We look at this person who is wearing a basketball jersey with gold chains and black cap reversed on his head and we normally assume he is a gangster but yet once you talk to him, he is quite the educated proper mannered fellow. We look at this book that has a huge number of pages and we assume it is long and boring but yet we start to read it and we can’t put it down.

What is amazing about our God is that he looks through all these things and concentrates on what is real important, and that is your heart and character. Heart and character look no different in each person. Everybody has heart and character but it all depends on how we use it. Man looks at the outside appearance but God looks at the heart.

In Christ,

Stan Yee
