I have just read on social media a quote from Nelson Mandela: “Don’t judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I down and got back up again.” It reminds me that people may always be able to judge our actions, but as the Bible said: “Your name is on their lips, but you are far from their hearts. But as for me, LORD, you know my heart. You see me and test my thoughts. – Jeremiah 12:2-3,” only God knows our motives, thought, and feelings. Conversely, God concerns our motives. There are no minor sins, no matter how negligible the outcome.
