Scripture: Genesis 12:3
“I will bless those who bless you…” What is God’s antidote for self-righteousness? God’s antidote is, ‘I will make you a plumbline.’ That is the last thing in the world that most will ever want to be. And I will make you a plumbline by which I will judge others. That is the opposite of self-righteousness. God is saying that for those who wholeheartedly choose Him that He will build a plumbline in our lives. How people treat us is how God will treat them. He will make us a plumbline. Now that’s not so bad unless He puts that on your kids or members of your family. We can tell that there is potentially some real discomfort that comes with God’s assignment. Becoming a plumbline is not an easy assignment because we like to prevent people from opening themselves to judgment but sometimes we can’t.
