Mornings With God

Therefore you are without excuse, whoever you are, when you judge someone else. For on whatever grounds you judge another, you condemn yourself, because you who judge practice the same things.

[Rom 2:1 NET]

We are not judged according to our advantages, but by what we make of these advantages.

Indeed the more light we have the greater is our responsibility and the more will be required of us. If we sit apart, in the comfort of our superior privileges, and judge those who have not our privileges and live unworthily, we must beware, for in condemning others we condemn ourselves.

It is a good thing to be born in a Christian land and to be brought up in a Christian home, but if we do not live according to our advantages, it would have been better for us if we had been born in a heathen land.

That was what Jesus said about the people in Capernaum and the other cities where He had lived and preached and wrought, doing His works of love and grace. He said it would be more tolerable for Sodom than for those cities, because having the privileges, they had rejected them.

We need to lay the lesson to heart, for we have Christ ever on our streets.
