Good evening. Great is His faithfulness.
Day 13: LOGS/PLANK
Do Not Judge -
7 “Judge[a] not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what[b]judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
7:1-2: (Romans 2:1)- teaches us- Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. (Mark 4:24)- Teaches us-We are not to pass judgement and to take heed to do others the way we would like to be treated, by passing judgement we are setting ourselves up for our own eternal failures!!!- Let's compare the teachings found in (Luke 6:37-38)- teaches us- mercy precludes human judgement!!! Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over: are showing us of honest and generous merchants measure bulk goods: The blessings the Lord intends to put and build on our hearts are more generous than any of us could possibly contain yet fully understand at times!!! Yet everything depends on the Spirit in which we ourselves give and forgive!!!
24 Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
"We are to judge the world by what is right and not condemn others through hypocrisy."

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’
