When Logan arrived home and pulled out his pumpkin, it wasn't at all what I thought it would be. My first thought was that it was ugly.
Then, God instantly spoke to me. He told me that I am similar to this pumpkin. I am not perfect on the outside. Sometimes my attitude can be ugly. I make mistakes. I am a sinner. Because of God's grace and mercy, I am beautiful. I have been set free. God thinks I am beautiful. God loves me unconditionally. God is using me the same way he used those like me in the Bible. I may not be perfect on the outside, but to God I am a masterpiece on the inside and out.
God continued to use this pumpkin to speak to me. There are times I have thoughts of judgement toward others. I judge too easily, like the way I judged the pumpkin. I need to stop seeing people the way I see this pumpkin. I think negative thoughts too easily about others. God wants me to love others, the way He loves me. In this day and age, it is hard, but loving others and showing Christ to others by the way I treat others, is what God wants of me.
I hope this has encouraged someone to view people from God's perspective. I hope this challenges you to not judge others and to love others.
