‘Do not condemn others and God won’t condemn you…’ (Matthew 7:12)
As we live out our lives each day, we find it all too easy to judge and condemn others, often without even knowing that individual or their circumstances. But, I wonder, have we ever stopped to consider just how others may be judging us and condemning us in a similar way. Here, in these few words, we are told quite clearly that we should not behave in this way. To begin with, it is not our place to judge or condemn others, but more than that, look at how it affects our relationship with God.
So let’s not judge nor condemn others, instead let’s allow God’s Spirit to work within us and make us more Christ like, such that all we show towards others is love and kindness.
