Jesus said I the best in Matthew 7:1, "Do not judge, or you too will be judged."
Simple, but straight forward.
The measure by which you judge others is the measure by which God judges you.
I was reading today of a law on drunken driving in Louisiana which is not one of the toughest in the nation.
There is a mandatory prison sentence for anyone convicted of driving while intoxicated. Getting is passed was a major victory for various groups against drunk driving. They could not have gotten it passed if it were not for the help of one particular state legislator who sponsored the bill.
Not long after the law took effect the first person to be arrested for DUI was brought before the judge and found guilty.
He was sentenced to a prison term.
Who was he?
The same legislator who sponsored the bill!
Jesus goes on to say in Matthew 7:2, "For the way you judge, you will be judged, and by your standard of measure it shall be measured to you."
Thomas a Kempis once wrote, "Be not angry that you cannot make others as you want them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be."
Just a thought for a Thursday.
