Be Careful About Judging

February 7, 2015

So be careful not to jump to conclusions before the LORD returns as to whether or not someone is faithful.

I Corinthians 4:5 [NLT, first edition]


“You can’t judge a book by looking at the cover.”

~Bo Diddley

My mother must have been a Bo Diddley fan because she used the above quote often. Paul warned the judgmental Corinthians not to jump to conclusions because the odds are not in your favor. Those who look at outward appearance and jump to conclusions, usually land on a lie. Paul said, “When Jesus returns, He will bring our darkest secrets to light and will reveal our private motives. Then God will give to each one whatever praise is due.” You and I see the surface of things but it is not enough to judge motives. God has the copyright on judgment.

    You way not be able to judge a book by its cover as Bo Diddley said, but I believe you can tell a lot about the author! Just kidding! 😃😃
