Here is my 6x6 page for Lesson 16 in the His Holy Name challenges - God's attribute for this week was Judge.
I found this attribute was almost as hard as JEALOUS - a few lessons ago - because Judge has a negative aspect - and can cause fear in a person thinking they are being judged - but God is a loving judge and really the only one who can judege anyone - it is not up to us to judge others - as my chosen verse tells us. That is the lesson I walked away with from my study.
I used fanciful papers on my page to lighten the feeling of the attribute - but used a black inverted scalloped square to frame my verse as a pointed reminder that we are, in fact, being judged all the time by God - so we'd better think about what we are doing! After I got it together I thought it looked like a cross behind there......
I've still got Faithful to do in order to get up to date on the challenges - I've got the verse all chosen - just need to get to work on it!

I like what you have done for judge. I agree that it sounds kind of negative and I must admit I think of black and white and get a bit fearful whenever I think of judging. I love that you've made your page colorful and that black "cross" behind the verse does make it stand out. I haven't put my page together, but I have picked out my verses and James 4:12 is one of them. :-) Great job on this attribute!
