Life of Christ Day 13 Devo | Don’t Judge

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.—Matthew 7:1-2

In today’s devo, Tanner talks about a time when he did something wrong that hurt others, and he should have been judged, but he was treated with mercy and grace!

Beyond the moment of our redemption and our salvation, Jesus is calling us to live a radically different life that demonstrates mercy and grace towards others—even when they don’t deserve it—as God himself has shown towards us.

Tanner invites us to look for an opportunity this week when maybe somebody in our lives who doesn’t even deserve a second chance, you choose to hold onto an attitude of forgiveness, allowing the light of Christ to shine through you, so that you become a witness through not just your words but also your actions—the most powerful way to bring people to Jesus!

Question:
Do you find yourself showing mercy towards others? Or would you say you generally lean towards judging others?

Take Action:
Look for an opportunity this week to extend mercy and grace toward someone, regardless of whether or not they deserve a second chance. Choose to forgive them this week, having the same attitude that Christ has towards you.
