Daily Scripture:

 ‘Let us therefore no longer pass judgement on one another, but resolve instead never to put a stumbling-block or hindrance in the way of another.’ (Romans 14 v 13)

Daily Reflection:

When we meet someone for the first time, we make an assumption about them. It may be because of the way they are dressed, the way they speak, or the style of their hair! That assumption leads to an “unconscious bias”, and will colour our thinking about that person, either positively or negatively. We tend to think positively about people who are the “same” as us. Paul tells us here that we must not hold others to our own standards, or try to “change” them to be more like us! We are all totally unique in our thinking, our behaviour and our beliefs – God made us that way, and God loves us for exactly who we are – not what others think we should be!
