Which Voice?

Love, encouragement, sound teaching, forgiveness, mercy, gentleness, kindness, bearing one another’s burdens, patience, crying with those who mourning, rejoicing with those who are joyful, comforting those who are needy and lacking, making peace with those who are our enemy, forgiving those who persecute us – this is our blessing to be towards our fellow man, Christ follower.

Accusing and condemning is the way of that other voice, that one of evil who hates the children of God – so let us be sure that we are following the good shepherd, Jesus Christ, for in the end, we will be like our teacher.

Judgement, just and fair judgement is in God’s hands. If we have Christ as our advocate through our faith, who can be a greater advocate for us than Him?

So let’s stick to our own responsibilities, not helping that evil one with His work, nor thinking pridefully that we are in a position worthy to sit in God’s seat either.

Luke 6:37-41

 “Judge not, and you will not be judged;

condemn not, and you will not be condemned;

forgive, and you will be forgiven;

give, and it will be given to you.

Good measure, pressed down,

shaken together, running over,

will be put into your lap.

For with the measure you use

it will be measured back to you.”

 He also told them a parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.
