It is so like God to give the very thing you need to someone you think you don't need.
It will either force you to abandon your way of thinking to receive what He has for you
Or, you condemn yourself by your own prejudice.

This is precisely what happened when God sent Jesus. They missed Him because He didn’t come in a package they approved of.
Jesus warned it will happen again, that we will fail to grasp Him, our light and life, when we overlook “the least of these” where He may be found. Matthew 25:45
Throw people away, whether because of their status, behavior, appearance, past, politics or even because they wronged you, at your own peril.
“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’
Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” – Matthew 25:31-46
Consider again Luke 6:37-38 “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
