Judge Not, Lest You Be Judged - Nathan Rages


In Luke 6:37-45 Jesus addresses the subject of judging.  His teaching on this topic is frequently misinterpreted and misapplied, but it can accurately be summarized in these four statements:
1. We must make judgments about others (v39,42-45).
2. We must make these judgments with a gracious spirit (v37).
3. We must first judge ourselves before addressing others’ faults (v41-42).
4. We will be judged in the same way we judge others (v37-38).
