“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others.The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Yes it is your duty to point out others weaknesses and faults but not the right to be judge and jury. You are to help them in their weakness and ignorance with love and compassion not hard heartedness .
Do you believe you have the right to be judge and jury over others?
If you hold grudges or attempt to take revenge, your own failure is certain. I know, I used to take great pleasure in tormenting anyone who crossed me. But in the end it always boomeranged on me.
Do you have a self appointed critic attitude?
Do you want to get back on me with a vengeance?
Soon you will be angry with everyone and be very lonely and bitter. Holding grudges is like swallowing acid to punish others. Ir will soon slowly, painfully destroy you.
Are you self righteous?
Do you believe you are better than anyone else?
If you are proud and find pleasure when others fail there will come a time when YOU fail and everyone will laugh at you. . You will be humbled.
Do you believe you are self sufficient taking credit for what God has given you?
If you think you are secure in your possessions and abilities, your situation is sure to change.
At one time in my life I had a good job, lots of money and lived the good life. Without warning the factory closed, my money depleted so bad I had to walk knee deep in snow to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money to buy a loaf of bread and jar of honey. That is what I lived off of for a week. Thankfully that situation only lasted for a few months I could not pay the hydro so being cut off there was no heat in the house. It was warmer outside than in that house. It was the lowest point of my life and still is branded in my mind.
So do not be egotistic and think you are so high and mighty, that you are secure in your riches. You WILL be brought down in the blink of an eye.
Prayer: Jehovah our gracious God. Thank you for the numerous blessing You have so freely blessed us with. Please guard my heart that it does not become arrogant and take credit for the blessing You gracefully give us. Please bless me not to be judge and jury but rather someone who comes along side the ignorant and help them eliminate their wrong manner of behavior. In the name of the One who never judged the adulteress woman Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
The manner in which you judge others, Jesus shall judge you. Joseph a son of Jehovah
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace.
