Look At Yourself Before You Judge Others
Tobit 1:3, 2:1-8; Psalm 112:1-6; Mark 12:1-12;
We are often pessimistic about our government, the politicians, the people who we deal with, and almost everybody else. But are our expectations and standards inline with the Lord’s? Bare in mind that the Lord doesn’t think like us. We complain about many things, and yet we fail to see the fact that nothing seems to satisfy us. Perhaps we should look into ourselves before we judge others. What may seem unacceptable to us may be acceptable to the Lord. So don’t be too quick to judge others, for you might turn out to be the one unworthy of the Lord’s graces.
Mark 12:10 says, “The stone which the builders rejected as worthless turned out to be the most important of all.” Jesus was that stone in the biblical time whom everybody rejected, for He didn’t fit the image of a king as prophesied by the prophets. If you were one of the people who experienced seeing him, what would you have done as well? It’s also saying “don’t judge a book by its cover.”
