Not my job

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 7:47 pm

Romans 14:4 Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

No parent likes it when someone else criticises their child.  A good boss wouldn’t allow someone from another part of the business to talk one of their team down.  A good friend will challenge someone who speaks ill of their friend.  In any one of these cases the criticism may be completely valid and the person hearing it may inwardly agree, whilst outwardly defending the person being judged.  The reason the critic is challenged is not because of their accuracy or intention but because it’s simply not their place to say anything.

I need to remember this if I’m tempted to say anything negative about one of Your people.  They may be a friend or co-worker but ultimately they’re Your servant, Your responsibility.  They answer to You and I have no right to judge.  It’s just not my job.

Thank You Lord that You are the only true judge who I answer to.  Help me not to judge others where I have no right to do so.
