Matthew 7:2 For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
This has really been on my mind a lot lately. It is so easy to pass judgement on anyone – even with a glance of disgust at them wearing something YOU might not approve of or didn’t do their hair – or maybe their homeless. Maybe their a drug addict. Maybe anything this person does disgusts you. And with a single thought – you pass judgment on them in your mind.
Did you know that Jesus never did that?!? He ALWAYS showed compassion for people in this nature of being. He always showed them kindness, love, mercy and GRACE. If he wouldn’t have treated these people in this way, I wouldn’t be able to experience these things either.
It is important that if you believe in Jesus with your whole heart and mind that you try to live as he lived. After all, we are made in Christ’s likeness… we might as well try to act like Christ!
