don’t condemn others
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven
Matthew 5:16

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Tuesday 24th August 2021

In your life, don’t be too quick to find fault with
others. Don’t give in to the urge to condemn.
The Bible says the Lord Jesus has been “…ordained
by God to be Judge of the living and the dead” (Acts
10:42 NKJV). He alone is the true Judge, and He’s
rich in mercy. There may be some people around
you, perhaps, even in your local church that may not
be living right don’t judge them. Instead, be the light
that wins them over. That’s what Jesus said in our
theme verse.
One of the reasons people may not be living right
where you are may be that your light isn’t shining
brightly enough. When a Christian condemns other
Christians about their way of life, he may think he’s
being spiritual when it’s actually an expression of
carnality. Don’t write anyone off because of their
errors Jesus also paid the price for their mistakes. He
took responsibility for all our wrongs. He alone has the
right to judge yet, He doesn’t condemn us.
The Bible says “There is therefore now no
condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who
walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans
8:1). People who are carnally minded only see the
wrong in other people. Those people may have actually
made mistakes, or are making mistakes, but their hearts
may be right with God such that when they realize their
error and are corrected, they’d quickly repent. A good
example is David he did something that was wrong,
but he was truly repentant and sought and received
the Lord’s forgiveness (Read 2 Samuel 12:1-13). But
that wasn’t the case with Saul. When Saul was rebuked
for what he did wrong, he defended himself, and God
was angry with him (Read 1 Samuel 15).
The local church isn’t for “perfect” people, but for
perfecting people. Come as you are, and the Word of
God will wash you clean the Word will perfect you.
The five-fold ministry gifts listed in Ephesians 4:11-12
are for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the
ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ.
In the Church, we can recognize when people
do something that’s wrong yet, like Jesus, don’t judge
them. That’s why we share the Word of God (Read 2
Timothy 3:16-17). The Word of God has the ability to
correct any man, and help them redirect their steps.
Share the Gospel don’t condemn others.


The love of God is shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit by whom I relate with everyone around me with lovingkindness, compassion and grace. I see the best in people, and by the Spirit, I’m able to impact them with the grace and glory of Christ my light shines so brightly and draws men to the righteousness of God expressed in and through me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
