Daily Devotional – 11/20/14 “Stop judging!”

I find it so irritating that human beings can be so judgmental of other human beings when we ALL make mistakes. I mean, I’ve looked around and I haven’t found one perfect person walking among us in the flesh yet we; (us, folk, people, man or woman, doesn’t matter what ethnicity box you check); got the audacity to be judge, jury and executioner over someone else life. Please understand; I am not speaking on Bill Cosby because until charges have been bought against him, it’s just people gossiping but I’m speaking on folk in general, those in the world and those in the church but more specifically in the church because Christians have it bad. You know we do! We hear a little bit of what people think and chile that settles it. Isn’t it sad that now days people go to church to hear about folk’s business rather than to pray for them? Yet that’s what we, as a body of Christian people, have become. I told you before, God isn’t pleased. We use social media to spread family business, church business, children business, the dog and cat’s business but not God’s business … I wonder why souls aren’t being saved.

We are quick to judge a person by their appearance, by their name, by the color of their skin, by their background, by their parent’s mistakes or by your past hurts and what gives you the right? Who are you to judge? Even a judge who has been appointed to hear a case has to be given all the facts first before he rules, yet here you are basing your judgment on … (I’ll wait.) Luke 6:37 says, “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;” but then Luke 6:38 picks up and says, (get this) “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full–pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” HA! Don’t you see? Give respect and you get it back. Give love and you get it back. It’s not all about money. Give friendship, honor, caring, a shoulder to cry on, help to carry those things that have us burdened down and you get it all back with the same measure in which you gave it out. You don’t have a right to judge unless it’s your job! So stop it!
