Day 19

Day Nineteen:  Finger-pointing
“If you take away from your midst the yoke [of oppression], the finger pointed in scorn [toward the oppressed or the Godly], and [every form of] wicked (sinful, unjust) speech…” Isaiah 58:9

Many times when we point a finger at someone, we are about to give our opinion about that person.
Usually, it is because they are doing something we do not approve of.
What normally follows after the pointing is our opinion.

Should we really give our opinion in an area we have no authority in?

There is a rule of thumb Pastor and author Kenneth Hagin lived by that is worth noting:
"If what you are about to say about another individual makes them look badly, then it is likely best left unsaid."

God created people and He cares deeply for them.  Even with all their faults and shortcomings—He still loves the person.

Remember all the mistakes, slip-ups, shortcomings and all out mess-ups God has been so gracious to forgive you of instead of pointing His finger of judgment at you.

Let’s take on His nature and do the same for others.
Read on tomorrow discover what promises await when you do…
