Keys for Kids

Stay away from evil; hold on to what’s good.

Posted on 4/21/2019 by Greg Yoder

Does that mean we reject people? A friend of mine posted a long, complaining, and critical note about a political leader. She was pointing out all the person’s faults and sins and then asked how Christians could support someone like that. As parents, sometimes WE do that, don’t we? We point out the worst in people and tell our kids to stay away from them. The question I have is—how can we expect unredeemed sinners to act like anything other than unredeemed sinners? If we’re constantly pointing out someone’s faults, how are they going to see Christ if we’re constantly poking them in the eye? Jesus was accused of being a friend of sinners. What are WE doing to reach them?
