Today Reminder - 18 June 2012 (Judge)

My prayer for you for today is that you will not judge other but instead help and guide them, in Jesus name.

James 4:11-12
Don't speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God's law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you. God alone, who gave the law, is the Judge. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to judge your neighbour?

Judge - God alone, who gave the law, is the Judge. Judging people is such a normal thing for us to do. We find it so easy to criticize other and to gossip about them. It is almost as if we made ourselves King and ruler and with that came the power to judge. How many times have we not judged incorrectly and how many times have we not made a mistake in our assumptions. Judging people is not our strong point. God and God alone have the right and the ability to judge other, but most of all, my dear friend, is that God will judge you in the same way you judged other. 

It is so important that we should seek the good in other first before we try and assume who or what they are or what they did wrong. Just think for a minute how you would feel if you stand trial and you are judged on assumptions that someone made up. Not only will you feel betrayed but you will be angry. 

My dear friend let us seek the good in other and let us keep away from judging. Seek God’s counsel and His guidance in knowing how to think about other. Jesus should be your example: Love even if it hurts.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
