Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life. Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you. Isaiah 43:4-5
God tells us several times, in the Bible, not to judge other humans. We are to leave that up to Him. He has the big picture. We don’t. There are lots of situations that we don’t understand in our human view. Even when someone’s intentions are not pure, we…
