Matthew 7:1–2 (NIV84) “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Krino- to judge others guilty and condemn them to punishment. What, me? The petty judgments of fashion, the moral judgments, the coveting heart judgments that say they don't deserve that, it is all inclusive. With our words we most often punish. We degrade effortlessly at times. It's poison! We are all guilty of drinking the poison! It's like drinking alcohol and being drunk and having fun, until you vomit, until you are nauseous, until the headache won't go away. Judgment is poison. Jesus is giving us a good reason to avoid it and love instead. Love unifies, judgment separates. You can bite your tongue, or you can let the Spirit urge you to love and flow with that. Although the tongue heals faster than any other body part, I would rather avoid the wound and flow with what God has put inside of me. Love.
