SUNDAY SERMON ON THE BLOG – MEASURING UP.

For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. - Matthew 7:2.

Jesus is concerned that we not have a judgmental spirit toward others, especially about their motives as to why they did something.

We can't presume to know another person's heart; only God can. When we are unfairly critical, overly harsh, or unduly judgmental, we need to remember that God will use that same standard on us. I don't know about you, but I need grace, and so do those I love.

I'm going to try very hard to be as gracious toward others, as I'm trusting that Jesus is going to be gracious with me.


Loving Father, forgive me for the times that I've been far more critical of others than I should be. By the power of the Holy Spirit, arouse within me a passion to be gracious toward others so that they can see your graciousness shining through me. In the wonderful and mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged!
