Kitchen Table Devotions

James 4 Day 6

Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.                              James 4:11

Always be ready to look at yourself first.  Jesus once said that we should deal with the board in our own eye before we worry about the speck in our brother’s eye.  Pride shows up in our mouths before it shows up in our mirror.  It’s so easy to talk about and judge others but never mention ourselves.  Two ways to see our spirit, and this is what James is getting at, seeing our spirit, and that is through the Scriptures and by our speech.  Let’s begin with the Scriptures and apply them to our speech first.  We all struggle with this, how about we all help each other with this struggle?  Let’s start talking from a heart of love and thanksgiving.
