Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or howContinue reading “Judge Not, That Ye Be Not Judged (Part 1) – What is Judgment?”

However, when we do well, we can expect lasting gain. ThisContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:18”
