The scales of justice are a pretty good visual for today’s message. You see, the Gospel is telling us that how we measure others, we will be measured. Simply put, however you judge other people, that’s what you’re asking for from God when he looks at you.
There is a simple quote that says, “Never judge the inside of your family or the outside of another.” We have no idea what other people are going through or what has made them who they are. It doesn’t mean we don’t work to help them remain accountable to their actions, but it does call us to walk with them compassionately. You don’t know their heart the way God does or what they desire but can’t accomplish.
In summary, stop judging others because we certainly don’t like it when others judge us.
