God is our only Judge!

When we are falsely accused of wrongdoing, we are not helpless. The final Judge is always as close as our prayers.

I Was accused of shoplifting. I had taken my two little girls to a department store, wearing a rain jacket I had bought there the previous month, and I had forgotten to remove a sales tag. I became aware of a man following us around while we were in the store. The man followed me out when we left and grabbed my jacket. He was the store security guard, and the tag was proof to him that I had stolen the jacket. I experienced the utter helplessness of trying to defend myself before someone who was absolutely convinced I was lying.

Anyone who has ever been falsely accused of anything knows how terrible the experience is. Have you ever felt that way? Have you ever thought: "This isn't fair!" "What a great injustice I'm suffering." Or "I'm a nice person. I don't deserve this!" Even when we are basically honest, people may misjudge us, misquote us, and misunderstand us. It seems to be part of human life.
