You Will be Judged in the Same Way You Judge Others

The first revelation I want to talk about is judging others. The reason I have chosen to reveal this to you first is because most of us are guilty of this harmful act. Wrongful judgment of others can lead to a powerful and possibly damning judgment for us when we face God on judgment day. Judgment isn't just about a mindset we have about others, but it also includes gossiping about others - and vice versa. You would be wise to stop any gossip if you hear it as well. 

God's Word gives us lots of advice about right and wrong living, as I mentioned in my post on Friday, June 17, 2022. And I will likely repeat that many more times as I continue these posts. For instance, in Matthew 7:1-3 NLT, Jesus warns, "Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own?"

An honest judicial system judges fairly those who have committed crimes, taking into account the type of crime, mental state, and the lack of and number of previous crimes. Our Heavenly Father wants fair punishment for crimes against others. But every human being who uses God's Word to judge others' sins is not judging fairly. That isn't the reason God has given us this information. Instead, we are to use these words to discover our own faults and correct them and to guide others. In other words, Jesus basically says we need to right our own wrongs instead of judging others for what they're doing wrong. Working on our own faults will take a lifetime. So, the next time you find yourself saying, "I know I'm not perfect, but...," you need to stop there. Remember that your harsh judgment of others will be used on you on Judgment Day - because none of us are perfect. 

James 2:12,13 says, "So whatever you say or whatever you do, remember that you will be judged by the law that sets you free. There will be no mercy for those who have not shown mercy to others. But if you have been merciful, God will be merciful when he judges you." Jesus also mentions this merciful reward in his Beatitudes, which we will discuss soon with the 10 Commandments.

This basically tells us that no one is perfect. But if we show mercy to others and don't judge them, our Heavenly Father will repay us with mercy and not judge us. This is part of  "love covers all sins" that we discussed Friday, as well. Love always shows mercy, not judgment.

Thus, if someone has done you wrong or is doing something wrong by God's standards, you need to pray for that person. Approach them, if you are led to do so by the Holy Spirit (do this in private), and let them know you're praying for them. Let the Holy Spirit lead the conversation with his tender and loving grace. This caring approach isn't considered judgement; it's considered helping someone understand a better way to live so they can go to heaven.

Prayer: Father in heaven, I pray you will forgive me for using your Word to judge others instead of using it to help me find areas I can improve my life. I'm begging you to please let no harm come to those whom I have judged. Remind me to use your Word as a guide to lead others to you so that they may know your forgiveness as I do. In the name of your son, Jesus Christ, amen.

Until next time, God bless you and keep you safe,

Patricia
