Chief Controller - An Error In Judgement

Matthew 25:37-40 (NIV).

 ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

If you are like me you would give good money to avoid falling into the judgmental trap from which position one looks upon all others with more or less disapproval. Sometimes I have to ask myself: "Who died and appointed me the chief controller of all mankind?"  But every time I try to escape a judgmental attitude, it seems somehow impossible – like trying not to think of a pink spotted cow.

Pastor David Miller in church Sunday gave the best possible opportunity to avoid this error. Quoting from Matthew (above), he pointed out that we are to see Jesus in each person. So, recalling this, the next time I am tempted to become controller in chief of all mankind; I will pause a bit, close my eyes, and when I open them see the image of Jesus before me.
