DON’T JUDGE, LOVE INSTEAD

Saturday, 2nd MAY, 2020
* *🗣Memory verse*:”Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?” Matthew 7:1-3 (NLT)

It is so easy to judge someone else isn’t it? If I am not careful, I will become a judge and jury over someone else’s behaviour and not even notice that I have committed the greater sin. Jesus had a lot to say about this behaviour. He says to get rid of the log in our own eye first, then go after someone else’s speck!
The Bible says, ‘There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you to judge your neighbour? In this we become like the Devil himself. Let’s repent of any judging we may be doing. When things irritate us or when we are tempted to judge someone else, let’s pray for them. Let’s ask God for discernment so we will know what we can do instead of judging.
*PRAYER:* Dear God, I am so guilty of judging others. I have been forgiven so much by You and yet I confess that I so quickly forget Your mercy and show no grace to someone else. I judge with my thoughts and actions, Please forgive me. Help me today, not to judge, but to choose the better way, the way of love and forgiveness,Amen.
