Do you find it easy to magnify other people's faults while ignoring your own?

"Do not judge, or you 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." -Jesus, -Matthew 7:1

Examine your own motives and conduct instead of judging others.
The things you find in others are often the things you dislike about yourself.
Our own habits and untamed behavior patterns are the exact ones we want to change in others.
If you are about to criticize someone, check to make sure you don't deserve the same criticism.
Judge yourself first and then lovingly forgive and help your neighbor.

This is not against all critical thinking, it is a call to be discerning rather than negative.
We trust God to be the final judge.
