Leviticus 19:1-2, 11-18; Psalm 19; Matthew 25:31-46

God judgement is just

Love of God cannot be separated from love of neighbour. We cannot love God if we do not love our neighbour.

To be holy, then, as God is holy, is to treat one’s neighbour justly and compassionately; to treat our neighbour as we would have them treat us.

How we treat others is how we shall be judged. That is why God’s judgement is always just, because God’s judgement simply reveals the kind of people we really are. God’s judgement is simply an honest assessment of the kind of people we have become in the course of our earthly lives.
