- Is it feasible to assess your own character and say that you really know yourself in terms of what you can or cannot do?
- Is it feasible to determine your reaction when you are faced with an unfamiliar situation?
- Is it possible for you to assess yourself whether you are a good or bad person?
Amazing that we sometimes look aghast and surprised as we hear stories upon stories of incidents that have involved our families, friends and third parties.
We find ourselves making statement that involve the following phrases
- “If it was me I would……”
- “How could they”
and any other judgmental phrase that we are allowed to compile.
1 Corinthians 4 v 3 – 5 gives us a stern warning about making judgment our potential reactions and leave the final assessment to God who knows in advance the state of your heart and your potential response:
I care very little if I am judged by you or by 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. Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes.
He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.
May the grace and mercy of God keep us in good standing in the blessed name of Jesus – Amen
Shalom – Love Never Fails
