Treating people right

Psalm 8

 Kind, treating others right

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”

Psalms 8:3-4 NIVUK

God cares about how we treat people. We can go to church, say our prayers and give money to the needy, do impressive acts that make us feel good about ourselves and dress holy, but if we don’t treat people right we are doing nothing. Without love says Paul we are nothing.

I have found often that people outside the church are not disappointed or hurt by Jesus, they usually are hurt, mistreated and disappointed by people who call themselves believers and act in a hypocritical, prideful, self-righteous way. 

We are encouraged today through the Word to see people as God does, we are motivated to see nature and the world we live in like he did, mindful and with care, with mercy and truth, love and compassion.

Let us make everyone feel important because God does.

We can’t say we love God and not love people, it’s not possible. Because God is love. The way we treat people shows if we know God at all. 

Let our prayer be, Lord, open my eyes and heart to see people and treat them like you do.
