And here I thought I was perfect.

I am a sarcastic person. And I have a low tolerance for people who aren't exactly like me. And I'm a little insecure. Combine these traits and sometimes my thoughts and words aren't as holy as I wish they would have been.

And sometimes God sends me a couple of Bible verses just when I need them.

And sometimes he sends me several of them over the course of a couple of days just to make sure I get the picture.

You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat. - Romans 14:10

Or this one:

For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. - Matthew 7:2

Or this one:

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. - Hebrews 4:13

I think He is trying to tell me something...

Yep, sometimes our Father has to hit us over the head with His word.

I hopped over to visit you from Beth in NC's blog. I, too, am a "Beth" and I wanted to say hello.

Imagine my surprise when I read THIS post, immediately falling under conviction! I have one question...have you been "reading my mail"? 'Cause it seems like you have me pegged! ;o)

Thanks for a great post. Please come and visit me sometime. I'm having a contest, so now would be a great time!

Blessings...

Great Post. We all need reminders from Gods Word especially when our behavior is not pleasing unto a Holy God.

I'm really glad you shared these.

Someone just told me I am too judgmental. I think I needed these verses today very much!

Mari said...

I need to hear those verses too.

You are so funny! I know that you didn't mean to be, but I just love AND appreciate the way you are so honest, Beth. Aren't you so thankful for His word which guides us and helps us?

Don't you love it when God speaks to you so clearly. Sometimes we just don't get it, but other times it's very obvious what He wants us to do.

Yep, the verse about how you measure will be how you are measured gets me everytime!
