Judging…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome

Matthew 7:1-

Don’t judge, so that you won’t be judged–the measure with which you measure out will be used to measure you. Why do you see the splinter in your brother’s eye but not notice the log in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, “Let me take the splinter out of your eye,” when you have a log in your own eye? You hypocrite! First, take the log out of your own eye; then you will see clearly, so that you can remove the splinter from your brother’s eye!-Jesus

 

 

Spoken to believers in reference to the brotherhood. This was not spoken to non-believers. “Don’t judge” is followed by how to judge. One must see clearly to remove a splinter; apply that statement to what is being judged. Are the magnifying lenses of Scripture in place? Is the eye washed clean enough to see? Shoppers judge produce before they buy. How does the fruit look?
