By examining him yourself, you will learn the truth about all these charges we are bringing against him.” (Acts 24:8 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, when I hear an accusation against someone, help me to be disciplined to learn the truth before I make a judgment based on hearsay. I must reject what is spoken without accountability and examine the matter myself. Above all, I must know that Yours is the final answer to any question, and I should seek it first and above all else. Enable me to do these things–always in Your wisdom and discernment. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
