viewing others as Christ sees them

God, would you help me to not view those who have hurt me in the past and their difficult circumstances as reason to feel prideful or satisfied in the midst of their suffering, but rather for me to feel compassion and to yearn for their salvation above all things. Help me to forgive, to love, to take the log out of my own eye, and to remember that you pursued peace with me when I least deserved it. Would I pray that she would know that same truth. Remind me of how I was before I knew Christ – I’m no better than her.
