John 7:24 - Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Take information that comes into your hands to God in prayer to maintain love and keep God’s commandment. These are words of wisdom to conquer anti-love forces. When you heard something about your wife or your husband, did you investigate before you believed and acted on it?
Take your suspicion to God before you scatter Christianity in your family or church. You saw a brother and sister standing together, you already concluded that there is something between them. Have you verified? Listen to God for He will speak to you right things.
You are suspecting everybody to be a witch or wizard. How did you know? Be slow in judgment and slow to conclude. Wait on facts. If you judge wrongly it will pollute you. Why run speedily into danger? Pray for more knowledge in all judgment.
9. And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10. That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; 11. Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
If king Solomon had been hasty in judgment, he could have given the disputed child to a wrong mother and that would have been a miscarriage of justice. There is great wisdom in careful examination of matters before reaching judgment.
After proper investigation and you are sure of the facts, the matter must be taken up appropriately to be at peace with all men. But suppose you act on wrong information; you may make a fool of yourself. “Keep your heart with all diligence because out of it are the issues of life”.
When you suck an orange and the fiber hooks between your teeth, your tongue will not rest until it is removed. So, it is with information in your heart. If you have not verified, don't act on it. Continue to process the information and take time to look at all sides of the story.
What appears right initially may turn out to be outright falsehood after your diligent investigation.
Thought for the day:
Verify information received before reaching conclusion.
Song for the day:
Lord make us instrument of Your peace……
Bible reading for the day:
Psalm 88-89; Romans 10.
