MATTHEW 7:1-5 – DON’T BE A CRITIC
If you want to be a critic, watch a movie and evaluate the picture! But when you’re not at the movies, don’t feel you have to act as a critic, evaluating other people!
THE CHALLENGE OF A CRITICAL SPIRIT – Vss. 1-2
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and wit what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
THE CAUSE OF A CRITICAL SPIRIT – Vss. 3-4
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
THE CURE FOR A CRITICAL SPIRIT – Vs. 5
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
