We must not make unrighteous judgments by failing in the same ways, rather, let us live and judge rightly like God with kindness, tolerance, and patience.
Judge (krino) = â€˜to distinguish between right and wrong (and in this context â€“ â€˜with the implication to condemnâ€™).â€™
Condemn - v.1 (katakrino) = â€˜to sentence; judge worthy of punishment.â€™
1. We often judge others in the very same areas we fail in,
thus condemning ourselves! (verses 1,3)
2. Only God can judge rightly as He is righteous and His judgment is based on truth.
3. Let us live righteously, and judge rightly with kindness, tolerance, and patience towards others, like God does with us!
Kindness, tolerance and patience toward othersâ€™ failures â€“ not towards sin!
