Now, a person who is put in charge as a manager must be faithful.
As for me, it matters very little how I might be evaluated by you or by any human authority. I don’t even trust my own judgment on this point.
My conscience is clear, but that doesn’t prove I’m right. It is the Lord himself who will examine me and decide.
So don’t make judgments about anyone ahead of time—before the Lord returns. For he will bring our darkest secrets to light and will reveal our private motives. Then God will give to each one whatever praise is due.
