From the heavens you uttered judgement;
the earth feared and was still
when God rose up to establish judgement,to save all the oppressed of the earth.
At the set time that I appoint
I will judge with equity.
But it is God who executes judgement,
putting down one and lifting up another.
And I thought about my day. The times I decided to be judge. To put others beneath me. To find reasons to think they weren't good enough.
And I cringed. Judgment is God's. And God's alone. So, when we judge. Put ourselves above, we are being the boastful ones. The wicked. I needed that reminder today. That judgment belongs to God.
Jesus--Forgive me of trying to do the things that are yours alone. Forgive me for trying to judge in your stead. Forgive me for the sideways glances, evil thoughts, and fake smiles. Fill me with your love so that I can see with your eyes. In your name we pray! Amen
