Who have we judged lately? Passing judgement on someone else is a perilous thing. For only God can truly decide what is right and what is wrong. Unless we are voicing God’s Word, how can we be our sister’s or brother’s judge?
To be voicing God’s Word would mean that we ourselves are not speaking but God is. We would have had to surrender our own way of thinking and just let God speak through us.
Yet as sinners we often try to decide for ourselves rather than God. We try to grasp from the tree of knowledge of good and evil and remove God from that role. As sinners, we need to be cautious that we don’t succumb to our own egos.
We should always be holding firm to God. Humbling ourselves before God for we tend to stray from God. So why would we want to judge others falling away from God when we too are sinners?
It may be that we ourselves may be committing a serious sin or worse. We may even not be aware of our faults but are noticing the faults of others. Only by God can we overcome our sins so let us lean on God to gather other sinners instead of ourselves being their judge.
Do we realize that even though sin holds us down, Jesus is the answer to lift us up?
