John 12:47 KJV
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
While on earth, Jesus was very clear about His mandate. He stated on a number of occasions that His purpose was to save not to condemn nor judge. In my opinion, He carried this out with a high level of professionalism, because when the occasion often presented itself, see how He restrained Himself from judging, rather giving hope.
A typical example among many, is the account of the woman caught in adultery (Jn 8:11) where He would refuse to dwell on the issue, but looked forward to the grace of God which abounded for the woman.
[08/05, 6:38 am] Carlos Jay: If indeed we seek to emulate Jesus, then we MUST refrain from wearing God’s shoes and leave judging others to Him alone. For some of us have condemned people by our actions and words even before God ‘decided’ on their fate.
The world needs help, do your best to provide same. Leave judgement to the Almighty, that is the sole prerogative of Him. May His grace keep your hearts and minds from judging others.
Have a blessed Friday. #TGIF
