Hello everyone, yes I’ve been under a rock when it comes to blogging but I have been jotting down many topics I’ve wanted to present. So here we go.
Over the years, I’ve seen people and even heard people use this phrase “only God can judge me” and quite as it’s kept are we really paying attention to what we are saying?
As a matter of fact God, will judge us there’s no doubt about it but he’s a sovereign God that created the heavens and the earth. He knows our thoughts before our mouth delivers it… must I say anymore?
When you look at the definition of judge in the context that we use it, it simply is people’s opinion of us. Were using it as a verb. We might have to bite the bullet on this one and gather some toughness because at the end of the day we do care to be judged.
If you are an entrepreneur you care about what your customers think and you want to know if you are indeed catering to their needs and you want to build a relationship so that can keep coming back to you.
When you wake up in the middle of the night and have a fresh idea for something. Many of us take it to a friend and ask our fave question… what do you think?
We may go a concert and someone may ask… how was the concert? Out of our mouth comes criticism and our opinion.
We post a Instagram picture of ourselves in our Sunday’s best and wait for the likes and hearts to come roll in. If it’s a nice pic. Nice outfit, or we just like you we will like it… SN we just judged you.
We sit in church, hear the worship team and hear the Pastor’s sermon. If something’s were off or you didn’t think the sermon was good lol we go share our opinions and criticism to our friends (I hope y’all don’t do that)
We are judging. Is it bad? No.
Our emotions play a huge part in criticism because we only like to hear the good stuff and not the stuff that we need to work on. (Bad stuff… negative comments) In fact those are things that would help us to do better but we’ve build this wall up of “only God can judge me”. When judgement time comes… you won’t have the advantage to reason or negotiate how you think something played out in your life. God will not be asking you for feedback to determine your destination lol
What needs to happen is balance. You can’t run from being judged or judging but we fail to understand that everything doesn’t need our mouth opinion (petty thoughts). If it’s not going to edify or build up someone then keep it silent. Continue to spot check your thoughts, sayings, and actions because at the end of the day you might find yourself saying… don’t judge me, or only God can judge me
I hope this shed light to some.
