Judgment To Generosity
Luke 6:36-37
Critical, finger-pointing, slow to think the best of others - it's not a great list! But, tragically, even the church of Jesus can fall into such graceless judgmentalism. By considering our past, our future, and who God is, Jonny helps us move instead towards a generosity of spirit.
