Do Not Judge Others (Romans 14: 1-12)


"Who are you to judge the servants of someone else?"


Many times, we wrongly judge others by using ourselves as yardstick. The Lord continuously reminds us of pride. Pride is self-focus. Pride is self-righteousness. Pride is wrongly taking yourself as standard.

The world does not revolve around us. We do not own anything. All is the Lord's. And so the Lord reminds us - "Who are you to judge the servants of someone else?"
If we are loved, if we receive love, and if we are blessed with the grace to share it - all are possible because of the greatest love that God is.

Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Discussion Questions:

1. What beliefs do I have of myself that I use to judge others?

2. What is it in others that I long to have in myself?

3. Does it impact on me - that we are all truly servants of God?
