Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy. But to me it is a very small thing that I may be examined by you, or by any human court; in fact, I do not even examine myself. For I am conscious of nothing against myself, yet I am not by this acquitted; but the one who examines me is the Lord. Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.” (1 Corinthians 4:1–5, NASB95)

You were all called to be My trustworthy stewards but some of you have been judging each other.  You cannot know the innermost thoughts of another’s heart.  When I come again, I will expose the secret yearnings and the purposes in their hearts.  My judgment is just, but your knowledge is only in part.  Judge not – lest you yourself be judged.  I will reward the good and the evildoers in My divine justice.
