How you judge others
Many good things are hidden and many bad things seem appealing. So it's important to discern carefully. The Bible encourages us to judge with impartiality and compassion: Jesus says how we judge others is how we ourselves will be judged, and the measure we use for others is the measure that will be used for us.
Here are some points made in the Bible about this topic and some verses you can study:
1) God shows no partiality
2) We should be like God in this respect; we also should show no partiality.
3) Believers need to discern because many people, ideas and situations are not what they appear.
4) We practice discernment, but don't judge others.
Bible verse to memorize
Matthew 7:1-2 (NRSV)
Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, the measure you give will be the measure you get.
How do you judge others?
Is that how you want to be judged by God?
