1 Corinthians 4:1-5

“This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.  Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful.  But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me.  Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God” – Most of us find a way to justify whatever it is we do. Yet God’s judgment is not based on our self-interests, but on what is right and true.  Therefore when the Lord renders judgment, not only will it be perfect, but it will also bring to light the real motivation behind our actions.
