Judgment, Compassion, and Jesus

I should totally be asleep right now. And when I wake up in the morning I’m probably going to feel like I need a gallon of coffee. (But alas I quit the coffee…again..)

But I can’t sleep right now. Because all I can think about is how judgemental we have become as a society. We sit behind our phone/tablet/computer screens and tell people what they should and shouldn’t be. Berate parents when they’ve just lost a child.  Ridicule life choices of those that lost their lives to a terrorist. 

I normally don’t post about things like this. Especially on my blog. But I’m just so tired of all the frickin’ judgment and harshness. And to think that so many of the people saying these things call themselves Christians. 

Have we become so desensitized that we don’t know how to react to tragedy anymore? Has social media ruined our brains and we lack compassion for those that have broken hearts and lives??

I don’t want to be that. I want to show compassion. I want to love on those poor parents who just lost a child because of a freak accident. I want to love those families of the LGTB community because there hearts are breaking. I want to pray for them. I want to be the hands and feet of Jesus. 

Because I know, that it could so easily be me. Because I know I’m not without fault. Because I know that my God heals all. Because my heart is broken for them. 

I urge you, pray for these people. The Orlando victims. The parents of little boy. Pray for our world.
