JAMES 4:12

There is only one lawgiver and judge, and he is able to save and to destroy. But you who judge your neighbor, who are you?

The Book of James refuses to be theoretical about our faith, always calling us back to
how our faith should shape our actions and interactions. Notice today how and who
and what you judge. Make note of your assumptions and attempt to suspend them.
Be open to meeting each person as the beloved child of God they are.

God, you alone are the judge of people and places, circumstances and behaviors. Yet, we constantly assess and render judgment. Help us to pay attention to how we rate, evaluate and respond to what we encounter. Send your Spirit to give us the eyes to see the world through the lens of faith. Amen.
