Jesus said; “JUDGE NOT, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” (Matthew 7:1,2).
We are supposed to rightly divide the word of truth. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2: 15). So let’s take a look at what else the Bible has to say about this subject.”But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.”(1 Corinthians 2: 15). “The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.” (Psalm 37:30). So if you feel that you are righteous ,and spiritual enough then go ahead and judge. You are righteous, but only by the blood of Jesus. We are faced with choices and decisions every day that we have to make a judgment on. Especially if you are a parent. “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.” (1 Corinthians 11:31). “He hath shown thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8). “Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou’ see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” ( Matthew 7:4, 5). “I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work. I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.” (Ecclesiastes 3: 17,18). Fact is, we’ve all sinned and come short of the glory of God, and we all deserve to go to prison and deserve hell, but, “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.” (Lamentations 3:22). Personally I’m going to stick with Matthew 7:1,2 as much as possible in my life. There is a freedom in that decision. How about you?
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
