Judge not! Really?
“24Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock…26And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.”
What is and isn’t judgment?
Guilty as charged
It is to our spiritual benefit, growth, and maturity, not that we are fickle in our loyalty, wavering in our convictions, but that, like Peter, when our weakness is revealed we acknowledge our betrayal, repent in sorrow, and dedicate ourselves again to be Christ’s representatives and servants. (Dunnam and Ogilvie p 41).
