Judge to the Degree You Want Judged

I remember learning (I use learning loosely, I’m still learning this) the principle of judging others only to later receive judgement.  Not only did I “learn” that what I recognized in another and was annoyed by, I was capable of and to a much deeper degree.  Some people call this “karma,” but it’s actually written into the eternal law of God.  “With what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Matthew 7:2)  –Jesus

You can't avoid judgment, even if you just think it.

You can’t avoid judgment–even if you just think it.

Romans 2:1 applies it [judgement] in even a more definite way by saying that the one who criticizes another is guilty of the very same thing.  God looks not only at the act itself, but also at the possibility of committing it, which He sees by looking at your hearts. . . .Who of us would dare to stand before God and say, “My God, judge me as I have judged others”?  We have judged others as sinners–if God should judge us in the same way, we would be condemned to hell.  Yet God judges us on the basis of the miraculous atonement by the Cross of Christ.  —Oswald Chambers
