VerseD: James 1:19

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger

Just as God hears His people, even though He sees our sin.

But God sees and knows all, and we will stand before Him one day.

Jeremiah 17:10, NASB

God will judge every person: first, on how we each respond to His Son, then by how we respond to others because of His Son.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Scripture reveals sin. Jesus, the Word of God, will judge us by His Word, knowing every thought and intention.

Live by the revealed Word of God, allowing the Holy Spirit to move in you and change your thoughts and desires.
