God’s Word is an Instrument of #Grace, Not Judgement- 

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine (2 Tim 3:16; 4:2)~ There is a word IN the Word for every situation in life and we are to use it to keep us on the right path. And while there is no across the board right or wrong time or situation where a particular scripture’s guidance applies, we must however be proper in our intent when we present it to others. If we use scripture to beat up on others for what we perceive as their shortcomings or faults, are we benefitting them and bringing them TO the Lord or are we pushing them away from Him as we step on their toes and judge them by the Word while appearing to exalt “ourselves” and our self proclaimed knowledge over them? Furthermore, ask yourself where YOU stand because surely as you pass judgement with the Word, the judgement of that very Word will be on you. Are you ready to stand accountable? Can you drink from that cup you serve? Putting the Word in someone’s mind is not done by hitting them over the head with it!!! Share your point with all consideration, humility and patience; being beneficial rather than judgmental and willing yourself to stand under its doctrine! As you stand ready to stone someone, ask yourself if YOU are totally blameless, without vice or compromised integrity. No ‘person’ may see you act nor hear your thoughts, but are you worthy to chuck that piece of concrete at someone else?
