I was watching The Fellowship of the Ring today for the first time in a long time and Gandolf has this great line – “Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
Too often I act as Judge, Jury, and executioner – deciding cases on very incomplete evidence. It’s time that I learned to leave the judging to Christ and get on with the job he gave me – following him.
Strong In Christ
