“For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.“
If one was to keep track of what goes around, they’d find that what goes around comes around. How many times have we all seen in the workplace that those who are critical of others end up being the ones who others one day later find a more substantial critique of them? The same is said of companies that spend their time tearing down their competitor, only to later to find themselves the ones being attacked. We can say life is too short to spend our time focused on the faults of others. And, we can say that life is too short to not focus on the good of others, learn from those traits and aspire to be better.
Jesus doesn’t mince His words when He comes to us judging others. He’s clear about it; what goes around with judgement will come back around to us. The great writer Oswald Chambers put it this way; “Who of us would dare to stand before God and say, “My God, judge me as I have judged others?”” If God was to judge us as we have judged the sins and faults of others, we’d be in a very bad place for a very long time. So today, leave the judging to someone else and let’s do our best to refocus on the good and the best of others.
