"All of us have sinned and fallen short of God's glory…What is left for us to brag about? Not a thing! Is it because we obeyed some law? No! It is because of faith. We see that people are acceptable to God because they have faith, and not because they obey the Law." Romans 3:21-28
How refreshing it is to know that God is not as judgemental as people are. As good as we think we are, all of us have fallen short of goodness at some point so we have no reason to point fingers at anyone else. I'm so glad that God forgives and doesn't play favorites. Instead, he loves and accepts anyone — regardless of color, age, sex, regardless of what happened last night or last year — who decides to love Him back. Now to me, that's freedom.
