James reminds us of what Jesus told us in Matthew 7. Don’t judge one another. We are not called to judge but to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to those around us. I find that I can become too critical about people who are not walking with the Lord. I make judgements towards them that I should not be making. I say things like they need to get right with the Lord, or I say things like, I can’t believe they say they are Christians.
My job is to share the love of Christ not to go around pointing out what is wrong. I’m called to be a light, to love others, to make disciples. James reminds us that it’s God’s job to judge not ours. If we want to live a holy life, let’s stop pointing out what is wrong with people and start to love them in the way Jesus showed us.
