Playing The Judge, Part 2

Adrian Rogers

Do you ever play the game “Judge, Jury, and Executioner” in your house? Let me give you some phrases that will come into your conversation if you do:

“I told you so.”

“You’re just like your father!”

“You’re just like your mother!”

“You’re always in a bad mood.”

“You just don’t think!”

“It’s your fault.”

“What’s wrong with you?”

“All you ever do is complain!”

“I can’t do anything to please you!”

“Why don’t you ever listen to me?”

“I don’t know why I put up with you.”

“If you don’t like it, you can just leave.”

“That was stupid!”

“All you ever do is think of yourself.”

“You’re such a baby!”

“You think you’re always right!”

You don’t have to say all of these in one conversation, but let me ask you, are any of these statements sneaking their way into your home? If they are, then stop it! That’s right, button up! Don’t let these painful words of accusation disrupt the love that God desires for your home.

James 1:19-20 says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”
