Shouldn’t this ultimately be everyone’s goal?? In the end, no one has the right to judge you. That right is reserved for God above, and Him alone. His goal is not to judge you, but awaken your heart. He simply wants peace among all people.
If God sees fit to align you with others who share the same views and values as you… then you have reached pure freedom.
Far too often we put entirely too much emphasis on what other people think of us. Regardless if it is good thoughts or bad thoughts, that puts such a weight on our shoulders and robs us of true peace. We are always striving to reach expectations that seem to fall short. Try just being with yourself, just as you are, in this very moment. Don’t think about what ‘Joe’ or ‘Susie’ think about you. If they would take the time to apply this same principle to themselves…. well, it would make the world a better place.
