Matthew 7:1–6 | English Standard Version (ESV)

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

“Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.”

Revelation 20:11-13 | ESV

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done.

Matthew 13:45–46 | ESV

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on findingone pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.”

Implications:

  1. The Law was given to us so that we can know who God is and what he is inviting us to become, not so that we can hold others accountable to it.
  2. Meeting people where they are is more important than telling them where they are wrong.
  3. It takes maturity to have a strong conviction and love people who don’t share that conviction.
  4. God sends his Holy Spirit into the world to convict the world of sin. He sends his children into the world to love people well. (See John 13:34–35)
