THOU SHALL NOT JUDGE

“Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?”

James 4:11-12

Today’s scripture relates to the Bible story of the woman caught in adultery whom the Scribes and Pharisees brought to Jesus for instant judgement.¬†Jesus replied to the accusers saying, ‘He that is without sin should first cast a stone at her’. This means that we should not judge others because we are not perfect like God. “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” Matthew 7: 3. We should be mindful of our walking into the perfection of God rather than the imperfections of others.

God is the only true judge, and we should not place ourselves in the position of God over people’s lives. We have not been sent to condemn others but to win souls into the kingdom of God. Are you fulfilling God’s mandate or going against it? May God help us to be obedient to His will for our lives in Jesus’ name. Amen

Further study: John 8:1-11
Charge: Judge not, so that you won’t be judged.

Remain blessed
