No one is beyond the reach of God

God loves everyone even our enemies just as much as He loves you and me.

For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another – Galatians 5:14-15.

When we are not motivated by love, we become critical of others. 
We stop looking for good in them and see only their faults. 
Soon the unity of believers is broken.
Remind yourself of Jesus’ command to love others as you love yourself. 
When you begin to feel critical of someone, make a list of that person’s positive qualities. 
If there are problems that need to be addressed, it is better to confront in love than to gossip.

Have you talked behind someone’s back?
Have you focused on others’ shortcomings instead of their strengths?
