James 4:11 My brothers and sisters, don’t speak against one another. Anyone who speaks against another believer speaks against the law. And anyone who judges another believer judges the law. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it. Instead, you are acting as if you were its judge.
Recovery is not a license to judge others who are not in recovery. Or who are not at that same stage of recovery as you are. It is a process of progress we all travel at our own rate. None of us are better than anyone else or worse than everyone else.
God gives us power and love and when we judge others we are not acting in His power and love. We are acting from our own selfish desires. Recovery is about accepting everyone where they are and helping them to grow spiritually with God’s help.
- Are you judgemental when it comes to how other people live their lives?
Prayer: Lord help me today not to be judgemental, to accept people where they are and help them move forward with Your help.
