Different...

We are all so different! Some are organized; some are scattered. Some are healthy; some are in love with junk food. Some are quiet; some are loud. Some are busy; some are slow. Some are stressed out; some are calm. Some share all they think; some don't share at all. Some love to read; some love to do. Some love creativity; some love basic. Some are detailed; some are simple. Some are neat; some are messy. The list is endless! At times we are tempted to think that we do things the right way...and everyone else just doesn't.

James 4:11-12 says, "Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it..." God wants us to be respectful to everyone. We aren't to judge each other. When we judge others, we speak against the law which is referring to God's law of love. God says to love our neighbor as yourself. (Even if they don't think the way we do.) Love accepts others even when we don't agree.

So first remember that it's ok if we don't all think and live the same. Next, enjoy the differences in others...even your children. And last...love others.
