Matthew 7:1-3 GW "Stop judging so that you will not be judged. Otherwise, you will be judged by the same standard you use to judge others. The standards you use for others will be applied to you. So why do you see the piece of sawdust in another believer's eye and not notice the wooden beam in your own eye?
Do I judge others harshly out of anger? God's Word says we need to be careful how we make judgments. Are they based on discomfort, ignorance of simply preference? Do I respond in unkind ways that are anything but Godly?
This is not to say there isn't a time and place to stand up against evil and wrong, but we need to make sure we know God's principles and not respond with arrogance. For without Christ, we, too, will fall.
I need to have an attitude of learning and growing in Him with a heart to share truth without compromise, but without underlying anger.
