Judging Others

Speck In Your Eye

Matthew 7:1-5

Matthew 7

 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.

Judging others sometimes is a hard thing not to do. As we mature in Christ we tend to think others should be like us, or be doing what we are doing. Judging others makes us look like we should be judged to, so the verse' says above "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?

Oh we have alot of things that we need to get rid of before we even  think about judging someone else, what makes it right for us may be wrong for others.

We will be judged with the measure we use, when we judge someone else, we have to stand tall and judging someone doesn't make us right, it makes us hypocrite's and we cannot  be that, we have to leave the judging to  God, He is our judge. So when you decide to judge look in the mirror, check yourself with God's word, read and pray.

JesusmyJoy,

Wonderful hub! This one really provokes thought!

Judging is not in itself bad. It is how we do it...

"The way in which we judge is the way we will be judged."

So when someone judges surfacely guess what? When someone judges righteously guess what? I always say the proper way to point the finger is when more fingers are pointing back

to the one who is pointing. We must as you say "check yourself with God's Word!" We will All have to answer to GOD!

Thank you for sharing

Blessings

Amen Betty. You hit the nail on the head. This is something that is very hard for me. I pray I can overcome this attitude. Forgive me, Lord Jesus.

In Christ,

Gaynell DeLappe
