Yesterday Jesus told us not be anxious and today he says “judge not.” Some things are simply easier said than done! We can’t help but be anxious and judging just comes so naturally to us that it’s not easily avoided. Jesus’s teaching is nothing if not challenging.
It's also very compelling and simple. What Jesus says about judgement is conveyed so graphically in what he says about logs and specks. And then he manages to sum up so much of his teaching in just a few words, “do to others as you would have them do to you.”
As disciples of Jesus let us seek to walk his ways with confidence and simplicity.
