Today’s devotion is based on 1 Corinthians 4:3,4, “I care very little if I am judged by you or any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.”
Judging others is easy. Jesus once pointed out how gifted people are in finding the speck in their neighbor’s eye without realizing that they’re lugging around a log in their eye. We’re all better at spotting what’s wrong with other people than identifying and correcting our mistakes. We love to play the judge. The apostle Paul reminded the Corinthian Christians that only one judge counts, especially when serving God. That judge is Jesus.
Please pray with me: Dear Jesus, please help me not look down upon and judge others for deeds I often am guilty of doing. Please help me to keep me faithful to your Word. Amen.
