The assumptions people make about you, your story, and your experiences disclose a great deal.
They disclose a great deal about the person making the assumptions, and you may wish to pay attention to what that person is telling you about himself.
But those assumptions disclose nothing about you.
We spend far too much time and energy trying to meet or refute assumptions made by others. Wasted time, wasted energy.
Your identity, my identity, they’re based on what God sees through Jesus. A person worthy of love, worthy of a second chance.
A person worthy of Jesus and His sacrifice.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
That’s the assumption God made about you, and me.
It’s Monday. Might be a good day to stop listening to the assumptions made by others and start listening to those made by God.
