Loving > Judging

Maybe we should be less focused on JUDGING

In light of recent events in our society, I find my self turning to the bible for more and more guidance. Our society has such judgmental tendencies. I think that is why most days I leave the TV off.

Matthew 7:1-5 ESV 

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

Matthew reminds me “who am I to judge”? It’s not my job on Earth to judge. I am to be an example of the love that Jesus has for each of us. I am definitely not free of sin, so who am I to judge. How is my sin any different that someone else’s?

1 Peter 4:8 shows us the power of love….

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Strive to be known by your love.
