One of the worst things you can hear today is, “You are so judgmental!” So, what is the opposite? Having no opinion at all? Then you will be criticized for “not taking a stand.” In our day and age, logic is in short supply! It’s clear. The goal is to take a stand without making a judgment!
As usual, people only quote part of what was said in “Do not judge or you too will be judged.” The point being driven home is that we ourselves are in fact subject to the very same standards by which we make decisions about others. We are to be discerning people, that is people who do make judgments, but we are to make them with humility and grace, being very aware that we are held to the same standards.
