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.

Matthew 7:1-6

7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 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? 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? 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.

“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)
