Re: Verse reading–Ezekiel 20:1-32 (day three)
“Will you judge them, son of man?”  Judgment is a moral obligation; condemnation is a power trip.  Our attempts to condemn are attempts to set ourselves in God’s place.  But how the world needs wise discerners of good and evil.  Nonetheless, those who judge rightly will be received no more warmly than those who attempt to condemn.  “Men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.”  Loving people, though, means telling the truth to them.
