Who are WE to Judge?

There's a difference between "using good judgment" - being wise and discerning - and judging others. But sometimes we have difficulty making that distinction - especially when we have strong feelings about what we believe to be true, and how we think things are "supposed to be."

The early church included a diverse group with many different beliefs, and it started to create problems and conflicts. Paul reminded them all to be welcoming to others who didn't see things the same, and to treat them gently. And his words to them are just as true for us today. As he told his followers, "Tend to your knitting. You’ve got your hands full just taking care of your own life before God." (from Eugene Peterson's "The Message")
