Caring for Others by Not Judging Them
Matt 7:1 Do not judge, that you be not judged. (2) For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged; and with what measure you measure, it shall be measured to you.
Words of Ministry
The kingdom people, living in a humble spirit under the heavenly ruling of the kingdom, always judge themselves, not others. The Lord's word about not judging lest we be judged does not seem to be a word about taking care of others. However, when we probe into this word, we see that it actually means to take care of others. When you are about to judge others, instead you must take care of them. Are you afraid of being judged? If you are, then you should realize that others are also afraid of being judged. Do you feel bad about being judged by others? If you do, then you should know that others also feel bad about being judged by you. No one likes to be judged. If you do not like to be judged, then what about others? You need to take care of them. If you are afraid of being judged, then you must consider others, who also are afraid of being judged. Always take care of others. Under the heavenly ruling of the kingdom, the kingdom people will be judged with what they judge. If they judge others with righteousness, they will be judged by the Lord with righteousness. If they judge others with mercy, they will be judged by the Lord with mercy. Do not judge others so much, for you will be judged in the same degree that you judge others. If you take care of others, you will not be judged by them.
