Don’t judge them.
Don’t criticize them.
Try to see them
through God’s eyes
when they have
a different opinion
Try not to be be judgmental or critical in your thoughts of others
Thousands of things we encounter every day are neither right nor wrong but are simply personal choices, choices that people have a right to make on their own without outside interference.
The devil stays very busy assigning demons to place judgmental, critical thoughts in people’s minds.
Rather consider what you should be doing and how Jesus would see them.
But the Bible says that it’s wrong to judge people this way. We cannot always prevent ourselves from having opinions, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but the moment we think there’s something wrong with other people because they don’t share our personal preferences, we have a problem with judging others.
If you feel yourself going down that road consider this saying to help yourself stay in alignment.
Don’t let harmful judgments grow in you. Instead, realize that God made everyone different and it’s ok for people to think differently. And when necessary, tell yourself, “This is none of my business.”
— Notes from today’s devotional —
Learn to Say “It’s None of My Business.”
1 “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.
God, I don’t want to judge or criticize others. When I encounter people who have different opinions and personal preferences than me, please help me to see them through Your eyes and remember that my opinions aren’t more important than theirs.
And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, It is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright. But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I AM! Stop being afraid!
Matthew 14:26-27 (AMP)
The more we know Christ the more we trust Him. The storms of fear are silenced because Christ is near.
19 And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart, 20 so they will obey my decrees and regulations. Then they will truly be my people, and I will be their God.
- Ezekiel 12
- Old Proverb:
‘Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing.’
- New Proverb:
‘The time has come for every prophecy to be fulfilled!’
I thank You Lord for this new day and for all that is within it. I lift You up today and praise You Lord for the great week at camp. I thank You for the encouragement of my fellow counselors and staff and for the opportunity to pour Your love into the lives of two young boys from the Foster Care system. Lord, I am not sure where this sore throat came from, however, I need You Lord to put Your healing touch upon my body. Lord give me the strength today to serve Your people in Your house and keep my team healthy and strong. Keep us in alignment Lord and help both the adults and children be drawn closer to You today through the preaching of Pastor Steve and by Suzie Starr in the Kids area. Lord, may everything we do today bring You praise, honor and glory and Lord please keep Your hands over my daughters team to help them come together as a team in unison and play successfully today while at the same time keeping them safe from injury. I thank You and give You all the praise and the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
