JAMES 4:10-14 NASB1995

Things to AvoidlfJames 4:10-14 NASB1995

“10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.

11 Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge of it.  12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” 14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” James 4:10-14 NASB1995

MATTHEW 7:1-6 NASB1995

Judging OthersMatthew 7:1-6 NASB1995

“1  “Do not judge so that you will not be judged.  2For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.  3Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?  4Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

6  “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” Matthew 7:1-6 NASB1995
