God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.
Greetings Bible Enthusiast!
The theme this week has been on judging others--using mercy, compassion, love. Let us always keep in mind that God will also judge us. Remember, too, that God sees the hidden motives of our heart in all of our actions, and not just the outward actions themselves, when He judges us. I thank the Lord for His mercy and grace. Help me, Lord, to show that mercy and grace to others.
God Bless You!

--TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:
Q. We learned that Naaman was the commander of the army of the king of Syria. What affliction did he have?
--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
While watching a movie recently, I couldn't hear the dialogue over the chatter of the two women sitting in front of me.
Unable to bear it any longer, I tapped one of them on the shoulder. "Excuse me," I said, "I can't hear."
"I should hope not," she replied sharply. "This is a private conversation."
--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:
Q. What affliction did Naaman have?
A. He was a leper.
2 Kings 5:1-2
Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the LORD had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper.
