Judge Not



There will always be a right way to mend a wrong. Since Adam and Eve, sin has been a part of our existence. No one can escape sin, we’re all born into it.

Most sin is invisible. You may get away with telling a lie or coveting something you don’t have, but all sin is punishable. Sin is a debt and it must be paid back.

That’s why we have judges and juries. Judges are appointed to courts to be the ultimate decision maker.

You can’t deny that you have judged others. In your mind you may think he/she is guilty. And even though that may be true, we have no right to place judgment on another person.

Matthew 5:38-39 – “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”

Judgment is coming some day, to all of us. If you give your life to Christ before then, your sin debt has already been settled. Judgment has already been paid.

Jesus paid for every sin for every person, past, present and future sins.

The sin of judgment is often rooted in insecurity and pride.

Who are you judging today? God judges the heart. Let Him be the Judge.
