"When we judge or criticize another person, it says nothing about that person, it merely says something about our own need to be critical." (Unknown)
What surprised me was when my former boss did not ask us ‘What have you all done?’, no he did not, he asked rather more important question, ‘How we gonna solve this problem.’ Well of course he needs to know how it happens, but he doesn't waste his time judging others. He may angry with the behavior but never a person.
Jesus said, ‘…I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.’ (John 12:47) Barnes’ Notes commentary explains that, ‘It was not his present purpose to condemn men. He would come to condemn the guilty at a future time. At present he came to save them. Hence he did not now even pronounce decisively on the condition of those who rejected him, but still gave them an opportunity to be saved.’
On his first coming, Jesus did not waste his time or energy judging others. He knew our accountability. He trusted each of us with our choices. Laurie Beth Jones said, ‘He judge not because He knew the final count was not in yet.’ God alone has the wisdom to judge men.
What kinds of things can you do to support instead of judge?
