One Day

for it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." 12So then each of us will give an account of himself to God. - Romans 14:11

Romans chapter 14 says, sooooo clearly, how little time we have for "playing judge". Whatever the reason is that we judge (fear, resentment, envy, pride) PUT IT AWAY! As Paul stated to the Romans ...."Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.." (Rom. 14:10)

Instead of judging a fellow traveler in this journey of life ....we should be compelled to warn those who will hear it, encourage those who need it, and speak truth to those who do not know it.

We are to, as best we can, live in unity with one another. One day each of us will give an account of himself to God. "Fear and trembling" requires no definition here.
