Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. (Matthew 7:1-2 NKJV)

God is sovereign. He is omniscient, knows everything from minute details of past, present, and future. He is omnipresent who sees and hears all things in all creation. Nothing can be kept secret even the inner recesses of our heart and mind. He is also just. He is powerful to execute His judgment. We are not God. We should not play God by judging others, specially our brothers in Christ. Let us not have the wrong idea, that we should not advise or even correct one’s wrongdoing. If a brother commits sin, we should be willing and obliged to tell him that he may mend his ways. What should not be done is to judge hastily, hypocritically, evilly, and destructively. We know the laws of God. We can tell what is right from wrong. However, before we judge others, we should judge ourselves – though even we cannot justly judge ourselves. Therefore, it is God who in the end will judge all of us. When He returns, all of us will appear before the great white throne for judgment. Will you be ready to face Him?
