do not make any judgment before the appointed time

September 7, 2018 6:05 am

“Therefore, do not make any judgment before the appointed time, until the Lord comes, for he will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will manifest the motives of our hearts, and then everyone will receive praise from God.” (1 COR 4: 5)

God is beyond time, He lives eternally; time has a huge role in our lives— preparing us to live in Heaven. We do not know “the appointed time” when our growth or maturity is finished; we do not know if it is the end of the process, just the beginning, or maybe we are in the middle of the process, so it is better for us not to “make any judgment” because we could be wrong.

“I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
