Judge Not…

on February 13, 2012

It is so easy to spot the flaws of our fellow man.  We can easily discern what is wrong with someone else or why their own choices have landed them in hot water.  Judgement and criticism flow easily from our lips.  However, we must be careful when we speculate about the lives of others. 

First, it is not our place to judge lest we be judged.  The same way that we judge others will be reflected when God judges us.  We want sympathy and to be “given a break” when we miss the mark, but we often deny others that same pardon. 

Second, we cannot assume that we know what goes on in the minds and hearts of others.  Only God knows the heart of a man or woman.  We must learn to stay in our place and treat others the same way we wish to be treated.  Let God be God.

Warren Wiersbe said, “Christians think they are prosecuting attorneys or judges, when in reality, God has called all of us to be witnesses.”
