Re:Verse reading–Matthew 7:1-27 (day two) “Do not judge lest you be judged” (vs 1) The opposite of judgment is not moral neutrality, it is intercession and involvement. Jesus is not counseling us to have no discernment re: ethics or doctrine. He is commanding that we do so with compassionate hearts. “Brothers, if someone is caught in sin, the spiritual ones among you should restore him. Do it with a lowly and non-presumptuous spirit, considering yourselves, lest you too be put to the test. Feel the weight that others are felling and thus fulfull the teachings of Christ”. (Galatians 6:1–translated by Dallas Willard) It is the consistent call of God. “Behold, I looked for a man who would stand in the gap before me for the land. . .but I found no one.” (Ezekiel 22:30) Friend, will you pray for your enemies and friends today? For their recovery? Will you be involved as God gives you opportunity and guidance?
