Life & Death
Stephen Covey has said, “We judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their behavior.” I found this to be true in my own life. The reality, however, is that the only thing that will be judged on the day of judgment is our actions, or works, not our intentions. This is Paul’s message in Romans 2:5-11. God, who judges impartially, will weigh each one’s works and reward everyone accordingly. This judgment comes not only in the future, but in the here and now! Our works can either bring wrath and death, or reward and life.
