Daily Verse: “The way of the Lord is a stronghold to the blameless, but destruction to evildoers.” Prov. 10:29

Divine justice prevails.

Corrie Ten Boom, author and Holocaust survivor, did needlework while speaking publicly. She would hold up the back, revealing the tangled threads of her tedious work. Then Corrie would turn the cloth over, revealing a beautiful, hand-stitched crown. She concluded her message with these words:

“Although the threads of my life have often seemed knotted, I know, by faith, that on the other side of the embroidery, there is a crown.”

Placing our faith in Jesus makes us blameless in God’s eyes. Those who turn their back on Christ follow the path of destruction. But we never know when someone will decide to follow Jesus.

God doesn’t ask us to judge people’s hearts; He calls us to love them. Each stitch we make draws us closer to our crowns. Sharing Christ’s love with others helps build the kingdom, making the path to destruction less traveled.

Lord, forgive us for thinking our standards better than Yours. Help us persevere today, loving others, letting You do the judging. Allow us to see others as You see them. Give us grace and mercy to love them well. IJNIP. Amen
