Why Judging Others Is Useless
Matthew 7:1-5 Who gets hurt when Christians are judgmental toward others?
  • The one being looked down upon
  • The one with the judgmental attitude
  • The church itself
Why do we tend to make rotten judges?
  • We carry our own biases and prejudices.
  • We tend to be vindictive.
  • We tend to project our own faults onto others.
  • We don’t know all the facts or circumstances.
  • People are ultimately answerable to God their Maker, not to us.
How can we be a positive influence on those who  have gone astray without being judgmental towards them?
  • Be discerning.
  • Be personally pure.
  • Be loving, not condemning.
  • Be redemptive, not destructive.

    Belonging Fully to God

    Psalm 24 - A psalm of David.

    The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,     the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas     and established it on the waters.

    Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?     Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,     who does not trust in an idol     or swear by a false god.

    They will receive blessing from the Lord     and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him,     who seek your face, God of Jacob.

    Lift up your heads, you gates;     be lifted up, you ancient doors,     that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory?     The Lord strong and mighty,     the Lord mighty in battle.
    Lift up your heads, you gates;     lift them up, you ancient doors,     that the King of glory may come in. 10 Who is he, this King of glory?     The Lord Almighty—     he is the King of glory.
