He shall judge Thy people with righteousness, and Thy poor with judgment. – Psalm 72:2
Kindly look at the second verse. “He shall judge Thy people with righteousness, and Thy poor with judgment;” so that one of the special blessings for God’s poor is that they shall be judged with judgment. Alas! they are often judged with harshness; or they are judged in ignorance; or they are judged by malice-not judged by righteousness, nor by judgment…Slander is very busy with the children of God. God had a Son that had no fault; but He never had a son that was not found fault with. Ay, God Himself was slandered in paradise by Satan: let us not expect, therefore, to escape from the venomous tongue.
One blessing, however, that will always come to God’s needy ones is this-Christ will right them, He will judge them with judgment. Are you harshly spoken of at home? Don’t be angry, don’t provoke in return, don’t answer railing with railing. “He shall judge His poor with righteousness.” Leave it to Him. Wait, wait, till the judgment sits, for who are these that they should judge you? Their opinion, though it is bitter as gall to your spirit, does not really affect your character or your destiny. If you are right before the Lord, through faith in Christ, they cannot make you wrong by anything they say. God judges and God knows…Bide your time you that are one of a family and alone. Or, if for Christ’s sake you have been despised, have courage and let not your spirit be bowed down. “Rejoice ye in this day and leap for joy, for so persecuted they the prophets that were before you.” The King will speedily come, and when He cometh then will this word be verified. “He shall judge His people with righteousness and His poor with judgment.” There is one mercy for you-to have your wrongs righted and your character cleared. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
