The Judges

Do you know the Judges? 

You may even be one yourself.

Yes? No? Ok, you be the judge. 

So, just who are these Judges anyway? They are the ones who have a double standard. They have one for themselves and one for everybody else. They are the people who can say things to others, but when those same things are said to them, they become emotional, judgmental and critical. They are the people who can do certain things, but when others do those same things, they become emotional, judgmental and critical. In their minds they are above everybody else. Such Judges may have a rude, selfish, holier than though demeanor. They don't take well to constructive feedback and reject the truth about themselves, especially if that feedback and honest commentary comes from someone who isn't as well versed in the scriptures as they think they are, or comes from a person of lower status, or a person without a high position, or doesn't have a fancy title, or is lacking an impressive education. The Judges equate all of those things to importance. And if you don't come with at least one of those in your "pedigree", then you might as well forget about being entertained for one second by them. Anybody else coming to them from such a prestigious bloodline will get a few minutes more...but they better come correct. For, the Judges don't take well to being set straight, because in their minds they're already straight. They're as close to perfection as anybody could possibly be. 

The Judges think they're above the "law."

The Judges can only rebuke (in their rude and condescending manner), but can never be rebuked. 

Yet, here's the truth of the matter: the Judges don't run it. They don't dictate the rules. They don't set the standard. They're no more important than anybody else. To God, we're all even. His love, kindness, and respect reaches beyond and across boundaries. He doesn't call "qualified Judges", He qualifies those He calls. And He's not concerned with how well we know the scriptures or our status or our position or our title or our education. He couldn't care less about any of those things -- He's not impressed.

God looks at our heart. That's important to Him.

God looks at where we want to go with Him. That's important to Him.

God looks at what we want to do through Him. That's important to Him.

If you're feeling judged, put down, or condemned by The Judges, know this: nobody is qualified to do such a thing. The Judges have no significance with their judgmental attitude. There's only one Judge and His name is Jesus Christ. In fact He's the only Judge and He's the jury too. Therefore, He's the one who will have order in the court. 

In God's eyes we are all the same.
He loves all His children.

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
