Don't judge a man by his relatives

"Isnt this the carpenters son? Isn't Mary known to be His mother and James, Joseph, Simon and Judas His brothers? Aren't His sisters our neighbors? Where did He get all this? " - Matthew 13:55-56

Jesus's hometown folks rejected Him because they judged him based on His relatives. People make the same mistakes to the present day. Ghandi, for example, was very impressed by Jesus, but never became a Christian because he was impressed with Jesus's relatives, that is, Jesus's brothers and sisters. Many people say they quit the church because of the hypocrites in it. They too rejected Jesus because of His so-called followers. How many people turn their back on Jesus because they were offended by a pastor or some other person in their Church?

Judge Jesus based on His crucifixion and Resurrection for love of you. Judge Jesus based on His nail - scarred hands and thorn crowned head

Judge Jesus for Himself and not for us, His relatitives.

Judge yourself for any sin by which you deface and obscure the image of Jesus in your life. Judge yourself for not fully responding to His crucified and risen love, for Jesus will judge you on judgment day.

PRAYER : Father help me fix my eyes on Jesus (Heb 12:2).

PROMISE : "Jesus said to them, No prophet is without honor except in his native place, indeed in his own house." - Matt 13:57

PRAISE : St. Eusbius lived in the 4th Century and strenuously opposed the errors of the heresy of Arianism. In standing for truth, he was exiled from his diocese.
