God doesn’t judge us by what we are, but by what we can be. He doesn’t judge our race, size, education, intellect, or the depravity of where we have been. He judges our hearts, and invites us to come to Him and become a new person – the person He created us to be.
He loves us, and pursues us to become His child. He will follow us to the gates of hell, hoping that we will return to Him. And all the while He loves us. Where is your heart? Is it with the creator of love and life? Is it pointed in the direction of eternal life? God will never condemn us. That is our choice.
If you try to navigate the seas of this world without God as your navigator, you’re heading into the perfect storm.
Don’t be afraid to ask God, your navigator, for help. We all need direction. We all need Him.
