His Holy Name (HHN 09) Challenge: JUDGE

I love Patter Cross's Scripture Challenges on SCS from last year. But I could never seem to keep up with them! However, I don't think it really matters... His Word is the same today as yesterday, and every bit as good no matter when you read it! Anyway, last August one of the words for the challenge was "Judge". I actually studied this last Fall. I put it aside, and now thought I'd share it with you. Here is how my study of "Judge" ended up on paper for me:

It just so happens that at the time I was studing, I was really feeling judged by someone, and this was a good reminder to me that God is the only real Judge! It is not the place of others- weather they be strangers, acquaintances, friends, family members- or even ourselves to judge us. You should not feel you have to answer to them. It is The Lord who is the ultimate Judge and to whom we will all have to answer. Yes, we have laws and a court system in which judgement takes place, and I am not referring to that. I am talking about on a personal level.

And it's all too easy for us to be judgmental, too.
We may have thoughts or opinions, but we need to leave the judging up to God!

I like this!!! And so true --- only the Lord can judge -- and He knows all!

Very inspiring Sarah. I too need to go back and revisit Patter's challenge. It kept me in the word.
