People are at different levels of their journey and different hurts. Some have lots to learn and some only know what they know until God reveals more to them in his timing when they can handle it. We should all be quick to love, forgive and pave a way of grace for those who need a way home. If we lose sight that all people matter to God and those who are struggling need grace more than disgrace we miss the heart of God. It may give pleasure to the person doing it for a season when they feel justified even Godly in hurting others but in the end it’s always our assignment to minister grace and not judgment. God’s heart is grieved when the body is at odds and hurts each other. Isn’t it easy to love the lovable? Go the last mile and love the unloveable.
And some having compassion making a difference.
13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
