25th June 2012 Matthew 7:1-5
“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. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Doesn't our society love to criticise; it's gossip this and judge that and constantly comparing everyone.
Why do we do it?
Does it make us happy?
I think not; I think it makes us feel judged ourselves and makes us introspective with no catalyst for change.
Accept others; never judge till you've walked in their shoes. That's how I try to live each day.
