was I correct?
Luke 6:37 37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
How often have we misjudged someone? We are driven and act according to our own upbringing, likes, dislikes, fears and prejudices. When we judge others by our own measures we always come short. Last year we met a retired Chinese Judge who was one of the earliest woman judges appointed to the bench in the Judiciary of Hong Kong, where she served as a Judge of the District Court for 18 years. She experienced exceptional miracles in the courtroom when she applied her Christian faith to each of the cases presented to her, resulting in wonderful testimonies to the power and love of God. She depended on God’s love, wisdom and leading to make just and, righteous decisions. This judge was successful simply because she understood that she needed God as her guide in every situation that came before her.
In our own experience with others; are we leaning on God for understanding when speaking to, or, about our friends, family members and colleagues? Let’s ask God today to help us see others the way He sees them, to love them the way He loves them, not to be quick to judge and sin in the process.
