Pastor David’s Sermon – How we should treat others

Today’s sermon by Pastor David Miller was on humility.  He referred to the scripture which cautioned us not to judge others, seeing the speck in their eyes while not seeing the log in our own eyes. (Matthew 7:3 NIV “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?”)  Pastor David spoke on how we should treat others.  Not as they treat us, not as we want to be treated, but treat them as God has treated us.  For some, that is not a conflicted directive for they have been blessed richly throughout life.  But for those who have had a miserable past, what does that mean for them?  The love of God is not measured in earthly blessings alone, but in the gift of Jesus and the grace of salvation.  Really, all have had a miserable past in one sense; they have sinned and been blind to the love of the Heavenly Father.  It is only through grace that spiritual salvation is possible.  Thus all mankind finds itself in the same boat in the end.  That we should treat others as God has treated us is a call to love and grace.  (For a Wesleyan understanding of grace click here.)
