Jeremiah 10:24

“O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.”

We often say “don’t be judgemental,” as if judgment were a bad thing, yet Jeremiah begs for judgement, and not anger. Judgement here is guidance from someone we trust – someone who knows our strengths and faults, loves us, and can elevate us when they judge we have fallen short of what we should be aiming at.
