“Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you” (Matthew 7:1-2).
The danger of judging others is that by so doing we set the standard by which we ourselves will be judged. It is a faulty standard because when we dare to judge another, we do so on the basis of speculation and hearsay; without factual information; we presume to know the heart of the one we judge. Which will you choose for the judgment of your life? A standard established by you and your faulty practices, or God’s measure of grace and mercy?
