Matthew 7:1-2 ” 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.”

The meaning of the type of judgment used here is about our private opinions. It’s about quickly pronouncing judgment using such high standards and criteria that we ourselves can’t adhere to them…rather than taking the time to ask questions and gain knowledge first. For as prideful humans, we’d rather judge, slander, and speak against each other than to offer grace. But Romans 2:1 warns us, “You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.” It’s the old adage of the pot calling the kettle black…none of us have the right to judge, only God can …or as Paul wrote to the Church in Corinth, “It is the Lord Who judges me.”
