1 Corinthians 4:3-5 (KJV) Sound Judgment

1 Corinthians 4:3-5 (KJV)
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
The subject of judging others is nearly a constant one Christians deal with. No matter how opposed to or unfamiliar with the Word of God a person is, he or she will believe that Christians are not supposed to judge. No wonder the subject is dealt with in multiple places in God’s Word.
From this passage we learn:
Don’t be concerned when others judge youIt’s just going to happen. It’s the nature of man. Many people will judge Christians for judging others. They judge that because we choose to believe and behave differently, then we are judging.
Don’t judge aloneWhen a Christian exercises judgment he ought to do so with the filling of the Spirit and the illumination of the Word of God.
Remember who is judging usEvery one of us will stand before the Lord. Every one of us ought to be more prepared for that reckoning than with others. We ought to give others that. Give them liberty to stand before God in good conscience.
Don’t judge too quicklyNone of us will be sure of the full measure of a thing until the Lord comes. Our task today is to live with a good conscience before God and to allow others to do the very same.
