I Dont Want To Be A Judge Anymore
HI! I am a teenage girl who is 17, and this study on gossiping could'nt have cleared the smoke any better!I praise the Lord because he has chiseled my heart into a heart that isn't affected by words of gossip, because I know the Lord doesn't lend an ear over to a group of girls and believe everything they have to say! But the times that I do get hurt, and very much, is the times that I myself gossip about another person. It makes me feel like a...dirty judge, that doesn't have a clue on who she is persecuting, even though the poor 'victim' is innocent, I have just told the whole world that she is guilty, and made her look bad. Anyone who chooses to gossip, must remember, that you are taking the seat of the Almighty Judge, God.
The Holy Spirit does lend me a hint (that actually hits me right in the nose!) when I'm crossing the line of talking, and gossiping. Just like Heather mentioned, "DO I focuse on the negative side of people? And do my words of criticism encourage, or discourage?" I would love to say that I am a gossip-less girl, but I can't, and thats why I love the Lord all the more! The Almighty Judge sees Jesus' blood on me,making me innocent, and I am eternally grateful for him not judging me with the punishment I deserve for gossping. Hes thrown my sin into the sea of forgetfulness, and no longer remembers my faults. Why should I remember someone elses? In the end, Jesus won't say anything bad about this wicked, sinful girl. He loves me, and the whole world! Who am I to talk about his children in an unworthy manner? Forgive me God for all the times I wanted to sit on your judgement seat.
