Judgment vs Discernment (Matthew 7:1-6)Chantel Fernow, March 26, 2017
Part of the The Kingdom Of Heaven series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We live in a culture where it is considered normal to judge other people--just look at our numerous reality shows with panels of judges or courtroom judges! However, Matthew 7:1 says, "Do not judge others." Instead, we are invited to exercise discernment and wisdom in our interactions with others. Note: The introduction to this sermon is unavailable.

7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
6 “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you. (ESV)
