Holy Innocents Feast Day

By nature we deserve God's wrath like the rest. But God is rich in mercy; because of his great love for us he brought us to life with Christ when we were dead in sin. By his favor you were saved." Ephesians 2:3b-5

First, he loves us all and expiates all sin. 
Second, we did nothing to merit salvation.
Third, God saved us before we knew him.
Fourth, we are not special to know this truth, it is all mercy. We are no better than anyone else. But we are entrusted to share it.
Fifth, this is why we must forgive others without payment or satisfaction. For God forgave us before we even knew him. His mercy is open to anyone, we have no right to hold back or hide what he freely gave to us " when we were dead in sin."

When you find yourself judging a stranger, from your heart release him and tell God your forgive him instead of thinking negatively.
