Do Not Judge

Do Not Judge Bible Study

Matthew 7:1-6 (ESV)
1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see 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,’ when there is the log 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. 6 “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.

Christ continues His Sermon on the Mount with a stern warning concerning judging others. In these verses we learn that we are NOT to be unfairly judgmental concerning others but rather we are to discern using Righteous Judgment.

Three times in these verses Jesus tells us NOT to be anxious. Jesus wants us to be focused on Him, NOT ourselves or our problems. Start focusing on Jesus today! Believers are to deliver the Gospel to those who are willing to listen to it. We are to leave the Judgments up to God knowing all to well we ourselves are only Saved by Grace through Jesus Christ.
