May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

Brothers and sisters: Thus should one regard us: as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Now it is of course required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. It does not concern me in the least that I be judged by you or any human tribunal; I do not even pass judgment on myself; I am not conscious of anything against me, but I do not thereby stand acquitted; the one who judges me is the Lord. Therefore, do not make any judgment before the appointed time, until the Lord comes, for he will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will manifest the motives of our hearts, and then everyone will receive praise from God.

It is not up to us to judge others. That is what the Lord will do. But when we see someone is committing a sin or operating in grave error, it is up to us to point it out. Not judge the person, but the action. How are you on judging others? Do you?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, it is not easy to withhold judgement of others. With your help and guidance, I will learn to see the person for who they are and not judge them by their actions. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.

The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
