Matthew 7:1-5 "
“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me;So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister."
As you can see from the title of this blog, "Judging Others", that this may be a convicting blog for some of us. I may be the most taught student of all, because I have learned a thing or two about how dislocated my heart is at times from Jesus' example.
"In His teaching, Jesus sets an example of how we should live and act in this world. Whether in parables or the Sermon on the Mount, He places very little emphasis on what we need to know, but instead on what we need to do. Matthew 25 is a beautiful example of Jesus revealing where our hearts should be. In describing the day of judgement for individuals, Christ reveals something significant about those who are accepted into God’s glory and those who aren’t. In the passage, God does not commend or chastise our beliefs, our doctrine. He only talks about how we treated those around us."
