DO NOT JUDGE LEST YOU BE JUDGED
Matthew 7 could be rightly called ‘The Christians’ relationships’ because it deals with various types of people with whom the Christian is related. It begins with his relationship to the brother. Today we will study the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 7:1-5. This is what we read.
Matthew 7:1. “Do not judge lest you be judged.
2 “For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.
3 “And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
4 “Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye?
5 “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
