“And have mercy on some, who are doubting; save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.” – Jude 1:22-23
A Pharisees Reading: The world is full of doubting people, destined for fire and even their garments are filthy!
A Christians Reading: People doubt, but many just need help seeing, show them mercy. Some people are headed for eternal catastrophe, share with them the saving gospel of Jesus. Lastly, even the “worst” among us need mercy, be cautious in how you engage them but show them mercy nonetheless.
How you read it determines how you act, show mercy!
