Why do you judge your brother?
It’s easy to overlook faults, forgive failures, tolerate weaknesses, pardon offenses, excuse sins, and forgo judgment—when they are our faults, failures, weaknesses, offenses, and sins.
It’s a bird of another feather when the same flaws tarnish our neighbor.
When we take seriously the Lord’s command to love your neighbor as yourself, the easy-on-me-hard-on-you double standard dies on the vine.
“Love each other in the same way that I have loved you” is a sure-cure for judgmental posturing.
Lord, deliver us from 20/20 vision in spotting blemishes in others and blindness to our own.
The robe doesn’t fit; take it off.
The gavel is too heavy; lay it down.
