Today’s Truth: Evaluating Others

As Christians, it is not our job to judge others. We are to live as Jesus lived, yet we are not to judge those around us. 2 Corinthians 5:16 says, “So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now!”

Before you knew Christ, you only had head knowledge about Him. You only knew what you could understand and nothing more. You saw Him through human, fleshly eyes. When you came to know the salvation of Christ, you began to see Him differently. Now, you saw Him through the Father’s eyes, spiritual eyes. You saw Him as Savior and Lord.

We must see others through the same eyes that we see Jesus. They are the creation of God, after all. We are not meant to judge them or evaluate their lives. We are meant to show them the same grace and mercy that Christ shows them. Isn’t that how we want others to view us as well?
