Setting Proper Standards

Pastor James Zaebst

Matthew 7:1 and 2:  At first glance, we have what might appear to be a prohibition against making moral judgments.  It is not a prohibition against making judgments  at all.  It is a reminder that any standard that we set for the behavior of others will be applied to us as well.  If I set a standard for others, they will in turn hold me to that same standard.  Sin is sin and it displeases God (Psalm 7:11).  We should never excuse sin (Isaiah 5:20).
