Holding Judgement

DAILY VERSE

You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

Matthew 7:16

 

DEVOTION

Notice the word here is “identify”? So often we can catch ourselves “judging” others rather than looking at the fruit they produce. The true character of a person cannot be observed in a moment. We should always strive not to judge but rely on the discernment of the Holy Spirit.
