Christian Devotional: God is The Just One (James 4:11-12)

“Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or
sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the
law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. There is only one
Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are
you to judge your neighbor?”

James 4:11-12 (NIV)

Christian Devotional: God is The Just One (James 4:11-12)

God is the just one

Lawgiver and judge, the one that has the ability to conserve and ruin. We are not in the
position to judge other individuals based upon what we see, feel and understand
because we don’t know everything. We have no idea what individuals are undergoing
and what they’ve undergone. Moreover, not everything we see, feel or think
are correct, we cannot pass judgment to individuals based upon our subjective
feelings.

We should beware in
our words, ideas and sensations as this might damage not just our self-respect but
also other individuals. We should talk and consider the great in other individuals
instead compared to what misbehaves about them. We should know when to maintain our mouth closed
(this is knowledge). The Holy scriptures says, “Don’t let any unwholesome talk come out
of your mouths, but just what is helpful for building others up inning accordance with
their needs, that it may benefit those that pay attention.” (Ephesians 4:29). There
are some points that should be discussed and there are some points that
should be left unspoken.

When we talk versus our
sibling or sibling or judge them, we are talking versus the legislation and rests
judgment on it. This is the risk on it. Sometimes we thought that we are
doing or saying what we consider other individuals or discuss the points that
bothers us, but if this isn’t handled properly, it will lead to
misunderstanding and hurtful circumstance. We should differentiate the line in between being
concern and being judgmental.
