There are so many reasons why we judge, and when we do, that doesn’t mean it’s right.
Judging others produces judgment upon yourself. When we judge others, other than righteous judgement, we open the door to being judged by others. Judging unrighteously doesn’t give you an advantage, it only adds to your character of being a judgmental person, and it gives others the opportunity to judge you.
We are to examine ourselves, and judge ourselves, not others. By doing so, we see those things that do not fit who we are.
When you feel the need to judge someone, remember it’s going to come back to you. Take it to God, and ask him to deliver you from it. He will reveal to you the reason why you’re being judgmental.
Matthew 7:1 (KJV) – judge not, that ye be not judged.
John 7:24 (KJV) – judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Luke 6:37 (KJV) – judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.
II Corinthians 13:5 (KJV) – examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
I Corinthians 11:31 (KJV) – for if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
