"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." NIV"
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." KJV
When we have truly seen ourselves as God sees us, we will never again judge anyone else by our own lame standards. We will be spending all our time making every effort to seek humility and purity. Who are we to "play God" by judging and criticizing others? Do we consider the fact that God will one day judge us with the same measuring stick that we use to judge others? If we submit to God as the one and only Judge, we won't have to worry about how He will judge us. Neither will we be inclined to judge others.
Heavenly Father, so many times we let our own ideas of how others live get in the way of our knowledge that You are the only, righteous Judge. Forgive us for not seeing our own faults and exaggerating the faults of others. Help us to search our hearts for our own actions that are displeasing to You so that You will have mercy on us when You judge us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
