Are we not quick to judge? I know I am. Would I be so quick to judge realizing that I will be judged as I judge? No. We live in a world that is quick to judge. Judgments are made every day without all the facts. They can be damaging and even ruin people’s lives. As Christians we are called to a higher standard. We must be very careful and do it out of love and concern for each other. I know that if I have to make a judgment, I will be more careful and take time to do so. God loves us and we are to love others as He loves us. We must remember this when we make decisions regarding others.
Questions for further thought:
1. How have you felt when you have been judged?
2. What kind of logs to you have in your own eyes?
Challenge: Instead of judging, show Christ’s love to others this week.
