eSeed: Snub Not

Read Ephesians 4:32

Don’t shun anyone because his dress is deplorable. Edison arrived in Boston one winter, wearing thin, yellow trousers.

Don’t slight anyone because of his backwoods background. Lincoln’s father grew up without education.

Don’t scorn anyone because he’s not healthy and whole. Beethoven was deaf and Milton was blind.

Don’t spurn anyone because he’s slow of speech. Demosthenes, the world famous orator, overcame a stuttering tongue.

Don’t snub anyone, not just because he may outshine or outstrip you, but because snubbing is spiteful and sinful. The Bible says, “Be kind.”

Prayer: Deliver us, Father, from the evil thought, the critical look, the harsh judgment, and the unkind word. Keep us from riding roughshod over the feelings of others. Make us loving and kind: through Christ. Amen.
