Many of us have a difference between our “roots” and our “branches” when we think one way, but act another. The root is good (we have a testimony), but the fruit is mixed (we pay tithing, but we don’t always do our Home Teaching). If we were judged strictly on our actions, most of us wouldn’t come anywhere near Christ’s standard. Verse 4 offers a great hope! We’ll be judged by our intentions as well as our actions. In His long-suffering patience, the Lord remembers “both roots and branches.” Could we do the same for each other? What would happen if we withheld judgment of each other’s actions (branches) until we have considered their point of view, or how much they mean to us (roots)?
