“Judge Not” ( Matthew 7: 1, KJV ) by Carley Evans

Jesus warns us not to judge others. As we judge others, we often call condemnation down upon ourselves, for the measure we use to judge others is the measure that is used to judge us. Unless we are without fault, then the judgment against us is greater because we fail to “consider the beam that is in [our own] eye” before we attempt to remove the “mote that is in [our] brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:3)

And, what is that mote when compared to that beam?

If we are so busy looking for motes in others, we fail to find the beam in ourselves. The hypocrite is the one who pretends he is without fault; being without fault, the hypocrite falsely believes he is prepared to remove motes from others’ eyes.
