Today's Verse : Matthew 7:2


July 2, 2012

For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and
with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
-- Matthew 7:2

Jesus is concerned that we not have a critical spirit toward
others, especially about their motives as to why they did
something. We can't assume to know another person's heart; only God
can. When we are unfairly critical, overly harsh, or unduly
judgmental, we need to remember that God will use that same
standard on us. I don't know about you, but I need grace. So do
those I love. I'm going to try very hard to be as gracious toward
others as I'm trusting that God is going to be gracious with me.

Forgive me, Abba Father, for the times that I've been far more
critical of others than I should be. Arouse within me a passion to
be gracious toward others so that they can see your graciousness
shining through me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
