The truth always comes out

The truth always comes out

Something I've learned is that it is so easy to fall into a routine of judgement and hate. It's like I think I know things so I create a generalization and hold onto that. The problem with that is that it starts to consume you. You can find yourself constantly dwelling on your own assumptions which is, in the end, detrimental to your own faith and sanity. I read a verse this morning that is so truthful it blew my mind.

1 Corinthians 4:5

"Therefore do not pronounce judgement before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in the darkness and will disclose the purpose of the heart. Then each one will receive his condemnation from God."

This verse opened  my eyes to this truth. Even though you may know what a person or group of people is like behind closed doors it is not your responsibility to make that truth known. It is our job to keep our mouths shut and love. How can hating a person or group of people benefit anything? It's easier said than done but fall onto this. God promises that He will take care of it and that is that. 

Let go and let God.
