(Week 22 of the year: Friday)
THE LORD WILL REVEAL THE INTENTIONS OF MEN’S HEARTS.
Let a man so account of us as of the ministers of Christ, and the dispensers of the mysteries of God.
Here now it is required among the dispensers, that a man be found faithful.
But to me it is a very small thing to be judged by you, or by man’s day; but neither do I judge my own self.
For I am not conscious to myself of any thing, yet I am not hereby justified; but he that judgeth me, is the Lord.
Therefore judge not before the time; until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the heart; and then shall every man have praise from the Lord.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
