Ecclesiastes 7:21-22 ” Do not pay attention to every word people say, or you may hear your servant cursing you – for you know in your heart that many times you yourself have cursed others.”

Ah, we see the good old Double Standard popping up in these verses. We are very quick to judge and denounce people… but when it happens to us, we cry foul. It’s the “Do as I say, not as I do” message that reeks of faulty principles that apply only to you but never to me. But Matthew 7:1 is pretty straightforward when it says, “Don’t judge or you too will be judged.” Or even James 4:11 that tells us, “Brothers, don’t slander one another.” Or as Jesus so wisely said to the group of men gathered around the woman caught in adultery…”If any one is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone.” (John 8:7)
