Dear Friend in the Lord,

Judgmental Attitude: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded His disciples, never to be judgmental about others.  Before we judge others, let us look into our lives and discover our sins which are often more grievous than others.  The more personal our relationship is with Jesus, the more compassionate we would be towards everyone.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 7:1-5

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not judge, and you will not be judged; because the judgements you give are the judgements you will get, and the standard you use will be the standard used for you.

‘Why do you observe the splinter in your brother’s eye and never notice the great log in your own? And how dare you say to your brother, “Let me take that splinter out of your eye,” when, look, there is a great log in your own? Hypocrite! Take the log out of your own eye first, and then you will see clearly enough to take the splinter out of your brother’s eye.’
