Sermon Notes

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.
