James 4:11 Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 12 There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?

From our president’s decisions to our little brother’s career path, it’s not our responsibility to judge. We may disagree or not prefer someone else’s decisions, but to say what’s right or wrong, based on our opinion, is judgement. There’s only One true Judge. That’s God. Who are we to judge?

What we can do is pray for people to make decisions that align with the Word of God. We can pray for the removal of demonic influences that cause them to make unwise decisions. We can pray their hearts are submitted to God. If they’re close to us, we can give them facts, wise counsel, or tell them what the Word of God says and let the power of God’s Word change their thinking.

Let’s not judge one another. It benefits no one and it doesn’t glorify God. Instead, pray for people to make wise, Spirit-led decisions.
