“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.
Matthew 7:1 NLT

Some of us think a person representing God or Jesus needs to be spotless. Some people feel like it’s hypocritical to have a person who may smoke, drink, or curse giving God glory when they do well. I used to think the same way. But if God waited for everyone to be spotless or wrinkle-free before using them for His glory, He would be waiting forever.

It’s funny how we don’t have anything to say when an unsaved person does well and they thank everyone else, but God. But when a saved person praises God after doing well, we want to mention that person’s behavior and character. We want to say “If God was really the head of their lives, they wouldn’t be…” Who are we to judge and say who can give God glory or not? We’re not perfect. At least they’re glorifying God.

Everyone needs grace. God can use whomever He desires regardless of our opinion of their behavior. Let God be glorified by all.

1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
