Today is about judgment.

So it coming up on crunch time for those training for Peachtree Road Race and there are runners everywhere in downtown Atlanta training.

I am an new runner, so I still remember when I saw people running down the street panting looking like they were on death’s door thinking “I don’t get it”.

When I see a runner like that first thought now is wow, I wonder where they are running from.
Now as I runner, I clearly understand the running about your endurance and perseverance. It throws all vanity out of the runner and gives you tremendous amount of discipline.

Show me a runner and I will show you someone that is great discipline and ability to focus. It also has a calming effect and helps you think clearly.

Clarity is essential to hear from God.

Being a runner is similar to being an Christian. We are all out here running this race of life. We are not always racing against each other but rather toward a higher calling.

So when you see a pessimistic, hateful , backsliding mean spirited Christian, don’t judge. You have now idea where they are running from. You may have caught them in low endurance or weak moment.

Even the best runners catch a cramp at some point. :)

So on rainy Saturday, don’t be so quick to judge. You don’t know the level of endurance it is taking on someone’s Christian walk. Pray for their strength and move on.

When you judge others; the same harshness you bestow can be turned onto you . Be the Catalyst for Change :)
