Romans 14:1-12, Do Not Judge Another

Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today

Why do you pass judgement on your brother or sister? Or you, why do you despise your brother or sister? For we will all stand before the judgement seat of God
— Romans 14:10

NL Daily Devotion for Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Perhaps the hardest thing to do as a human is to NOT judge others.

It’s second nature.

We judge the way people raise their kids. The clothes they wear. Their hair, their body type, how they drive.

We judge how they believe - what church they go to, if they go often, and if they seem to be LIVING that faith.

We know that God is the one we are all accountable to, and yet we judge.

If only we could offer love and assistance rather than judgement - we’d be a lot more peaceful as a world - and probably a lot more in line with God’s plan!

What do you do when you catch yourself passing judgement?
