Judge Not

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.” Matthew 7: 1-2

 

Drones are getting cheaper and have become accessible to the masses.  We see more of these devices flying about. Most of them have cameras. It’s becoming more usual to see videos of familiar areas from a new perspective. The new views are fascinating as we see things in ways we never did before. It’s why we should leave judging to God. 
 
Our perspective is so limited. We see from a low angle and generally miss the overview. God never does. Not only is our view limited in the physical.  It also lacks time perspective. We see in snapshots. God sees with the past and future in view.  How dare we judge?  
 
We would not want to be judged by our perspective with its very limited view. Most of all we would not want to be viewed without the filters God has and uses. He sees things through the filter of his love and of his son’s forgiving redemptive work. I don’t want to ever be judged without the benefit of that. I think I’ll limit myself to trusting and leave the judging to God.
