“FOR THE MEASURE WITH WHICH YOU MEASURE WILL IN RETURN BE MEASURED OUT TO YOU.” LK 6:36-38
Humbly submit your will to God (Thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through Mary and Joseph.
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Stop judging and you will not be judged.
Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and gifts will be given to you;
a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap.For the measure with which you measure
will in return be measured out to you.” LK 6:36-38
Today’s Gospel is taken from Luke’s Sermon on the Plain which is similar to the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew’s Gospel. The section today’s Gospel is taken from is “Love of Enemies” and how to treat our neighbor. What speaks to my heart the most is that we are all sinners. We fail to do the Father’s Will by judging, condemning, being selfish, labeling, and sinning.
I often see this in myself as a father trying to teach my own children to be holy. It’s hard. I sometimes get on them about something when I don’t model it well myself. It doesn’t mean that I stop disciplining with tough love, but I try to be mindful of how I am living what I am teaching them myself.
God will be the final judge of our lives and He judges justly. We are called to judge as fathers, mothers, teachers, judges, etc., but when we judge it must be based on God’s laws and He is love and mercy with justice. He has compassion (suffers with) on us, but He taught us sin has serious consequences. His love and mercy are so great that He gave His only Son to die for us. God’s love is more powerful than anything in the world! This is why He is so radical to teach to even love our enemies. This is crazy talk! This is radical love! God’s love overcomes everything and He wants to share it with you.
We are called to recognize the love and mercy the Father has for us, so that we too can love and be merciful to others. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Are you willing to lose your pride and think of others before yourself in all that you do today?
Today’s challenge: Try to live without judging today, what someone is wearing, how they look, how they talk, what they said, and if they say something that hurts or offends you, be ready to forgive. Love the unlovable in your world today. Give expecting nothing in return. It’s hard being a Christian! Only with God’s grace can we fulfill what Jesus wants us to do in today’s Gospel.
Be a servant, become a saint!
I think what Jesus is telling us in today’s Gospel is that whatever we do to someone will happen to us. Jesus says, “Forgive and you will be forgiven.” I think that he wants us to forgive others and he will forgive us for what we have done. We can’t just expect Him to do something for us unless we do it for someone else.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus is telling us to treat others the way we want to be treated. If you do things for others, the same will happen to you.
In this Gospel, Jesus tells us how to treat others. He tells us that we should be merciful to others, that we should not judge or condemn anyone, and that we should forgive. Whenever we are merciful, God becomes merciful to us. When ever we are good to others, God will repay us.
We often judge other people by how they look, act, or talk. Maybe they are a different race than you or they have a lisp. Instead of judging them or looking at them, we should say hi. No matter the circumstance, all humans are human and because of that they deserve respect instead of judgment. By caring and loving others, we can show that we care for everyone.
In todays reading we are shown how if we treat someone with respect they will respect us. In life I feel this is true. Its a lot of first impressions though, because if you meet someone who is rude to you the first time you meet your gonna think that that is who they are a rude person. So then you treat them with less kindness.
Today´s scripture passage is definitely very important. The main message I took from this reading is that we are all human and we make mistakes. No one is perfect. We need to stop judging because we have done the same things whether we want to admit it or not. We need to be the things we want in return. Be kind so that kindness comes back. We all sin, and make mistakes we wish we would not have done, so be merciful, forgive others. Jesus forgives us even though we hurt him every single day. If you want to be forgiven by Jesus, forgive others like Jesus would.
What reached out to me was when Jesus said, “Forgive and you will be forgiven.” What this means to me is that we can’t expect God to forgive us of all our sins if we don’t forgive others for theirs. We can’t harshly judge someone or hold a grudge against them, because we all make mistakes.
We are told today to “Stop judging and you will not be judged” we always find the worst in people instead of finding the good. Instead of talking bad about people we should talk good about people because no one likes to be talked about badly. It is like the golden rule “Treat your neighbor as you want to be treated” If we want kindness we have to show kindness.
Today’s scripture goes back to the golden rule: treat others how you want to be treated. Jesus says that if we stop doing those things to other people they will stop doing them back.
The Golden Rule is a rule that we must follow to be good to others. Treat others as you want to be treated. God sees all that we do. If he sees that we are kind to others he will be kind to us. Always treat others with care because there is always someone watching.
As sinners, we can show that we are trying to do good and follow in the path of Jesus by just doing what we did. If we forgive, we will be forgiven. If we give gifts, we will be given gifts. If we don’t judge, we will not be judged ourselves. By simply doing what Jesus did, we will be forgiven of our sins.
“For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” This is the golden rule “Treat others the way you wish to be treated” which goes with everything in our faith. An example if you wish to be forgiven you must forgive. Another is if you with judgement if before you point out the splinter in your neighbors eye first remove the wooden beam from your own, so if we wish to no longer be judged we must not judge others.
A phrase that stuck out to me was For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you. I like this phrase because it means that if we want something more than someone else we have to give more away. Another reason I like this phrase is because when I need something I have to pay the dues like if I want shoes I have to pay half of what they are. Like that we have give out our love and kindness to others.
I read this and all i could think about is how i shouldn’t focus on what i don’t have because i probably don’t have it because i’m not doing enough. All of us think we deserve more, but do we really, when we treat people like this. All we have to do is do stuff for the better no matter what do it for Jesus. We all have a choice what is yours?
Jesus tells us to treat others the way we want to be treated. “Stop judging and you will not be judged.” If we want others to be treated nicely, we need to treat others nicely especially since we are all made in the image of God and we are all brothers and sisters in Christ.
We as sinners are often encouraged to judge others. It’s almost natural for us to judge others. We judge people before we even get to know them. We judge people when we gossip. We judge people at school. We are constantly judging people. It is not our place to judge. Only God is the one to judge. It is not our job to judge because when we return to the father we will be sat in front of Him and that will be our time of judgment. Instead of judging our neighbors, we should uplift them. We should love our neighbor and put all of our judgments aside. We should help our neighbors get to heaven.
In today’s scripture it is telling us not to judge others for the stick we measure People are the same way Jesus will judge us when we are in judgement. Jesus says that if we give we will get gifts and he means grace. Jesus wants us to forgive other people because Jesus forgives us of our sins so if we don’t forgive others then why should Jesus forgive us for our sins.
“What speaks to my heart the most is that we are all sinners. We fail to do the Father’s Will by judging, condemning, being selfish, labeling, and sinning.” Its hard not to sin thats why God gave us confession he will resolve and forgive all of are sins.
The golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated or do to others as you want them to do to you. don’t judge and you won’t be judged. God is in everybody. so if you do to someone wrongly you do to God wrongly. be nice to them they be nice back. love your neighbor as you love yourself.
I think that it says that if you forgive someone then you will be forgiven. And if you give to someone then gifts will be given to you, and to treat people the way that you want them to treat you.
God will be the final judge of our lives, this tells us that God chooses and knows when we are going to die. We were made for a purpose, we have a purpose, we were not made just to be here, God knows what we are going to do in our life, because He is our creator
We judge people so many times in life over the littlest things, it could be over the clothes they wear the shoes they have the way there hair is or anything else bug God is the only one who has any right to judge anyone. We love to point out other peoples flaws but then we never think of our own flaws. We need to realize all you need is faith not cool clothes not good hair just faith.
God will judge everything we did here on earth. So we need to live our life like God, we need to help others, be kind, and not gossip. God loves us, and God’s love is the most powerful thing and feeling in the world, so we need to open our eyes, and stop being ignorant, shelfish and accept God’s love and surrender ourselves to him.
In the scripture today it is saying that what we do here on Earth will be done BACK to us in the afterlife. So we have to treat others with kindness and respect if we want to be treated with kindness and respect. Like the Golden Rule “Treat others as you want to be treated.” So we have to treat other people and God the way that we want to be treated. Like if say, we were talking behind someones back, then we would have a sin on our hearts and we would get talked about behind our backs. So like at the end of the Scripture it says, For the measure with which you measure
will in return be measured out to you.” So we must treat others the way we want to be treated.
In today’s scripture it says “Stop judging and you will not be judged.” I think that this is a very powerful saying. Who are we to judge we are all in this together. God loves us equally. If God made we all have him inside of us. Jesus is within each and every one of us so whenever you are hurting someone else you are hurting God.
Are you willing to give up comfort for helping others? We must live without judging, if that’s the way they talk or what they are wearing. Love the unlovable, give and expect nothing in return, we can only do this with God’s grace.
God wants us to be holy, go out and spread his word. He wants us to treat others how we want to be treated, and to respect others. That’s what will lead us to eternal happiness with him.
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.” This is like the golden rule treat others how you want to be treated If we want to be treated well then we treat others well to Stop judging and you will not be judged, stop labling people and calling each other names Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Stop puting people down Forgive and you will be forgiven. Don’t hold grudges. Lent is a time to stop being mean and judging and holding grudges and to get back on the path to God.
In this Gospel Jesus says to stop labeling people. It can be hard not to label people at times because of their disabilities, mental and physical, Their goals and pubic opinion. We must not judge or we will be judged.
Stop judging and you will not be judged
this struck me because sometimes these things are not true. if we stop judging, we may still be judged.
In today’s gospel it is saying Do what you what done onto you. Treat others the way you want to be treated and what you give you will receive a greater joy. Don’t judge others for you will be judged and that will come to your final judgement day.
God will repay you. ?Give and you shall receive, or its the opposite stop commanding and you will not be command. As long as you do something good you will get something in return.
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Stop judging and you will not be judged.Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.Forgive and you will be forgiven.Give and gifts will be given to you;a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap.For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” Be like Jesus.Be merciful that’s what this means,You cannot say no to someone asking for help and expect them to say yes when you ask,and then they say no and you get mad.That doesn’t make any sense .or if you don’t bring someone a present,and you get upset when they dont bring you a present.When someone asks you for help,See them as if they were you,you would want to help yourself so help them.
this passage is mainly about how to treat others. If we want people to be nice to us then we have to be nice to them. What also stuck out to me was, “God will be the final judge of our lives and He judges justly. We are called to judge as fathers, mothers, teachers, judges, etc., but when we judge it must be based on God’s laws and He is love and mercy with justice. He has compassion (suffers with) on us, but He taught us sin has serious consequences.” We are judged our whole lives by our sins, but we need to live up to it for the second coming.
In this Gospel, Jesus tells us how to treat others. He tells us that we should be merciful to others, that we should not judge or condemn anyone, and that we should forgive. Whenever we are merciful, God becomes merciful to us. Whenever we are good to others, God will repay us.
if you keep judging them they will judge you and so stop judging people and give them a compliment
This is kind of saying the golden rule. “Stop judging and you will not be judged.” Treat others as you want to be treated
I think what this is trying to say is not gossip about others and judge others. You have to think about if they did that to you how would you feel. Instead give them a compliment not talk about them, be nice and have a conversation because they probably just need somebody.
While on earth, God sees the good deeds we do and he ultimately repays us with eternal life in heaven with him. God doesnt take anything we do for granted.
we are all human and make mistakes and god loves us no matter what we are in no position to judge people because we are all in perfect and sinners god loves you!!!!
if you do something you will always get something in return whether its a bad thing you did or a good thing you did. there are consequences to the wrongs things and there is success in the good things. find your path and do what you need to do.
I think what God is trying to say is that everything that we give to people will be given back to you, mentally. Say that you give people a lot of patients we shall get more patients out of other people so, treat people on how you wanted to be treated.
What stuck out to me was that His love and mercy are so great that He gave His only Son to die for us. God’s love is more powerful than anything in the world! This is why He is so radical to teach to even love our enemies. This is crazy talk! This is radical love! God’s love overcomes everything and He wants to share it with you. This stuck pout to me because sometimes i do thing like sin and i feel so mad at myself for doing those things but i remember God will always love me and I get back up and i try harder not to do that sin again so i can make him proud.
You will be rewarded for all the good deeds. For every nice thing you do someone will do it back to you. God is our example to follow. He wants us to do good so he gave Jesus as our example.
In this Gospel, Jesus tells us how to treat others. He tells us that we should be kind to others, and not condemn or judge anyone, we should forgive others. Whenever we are merciful, God will be merciful to us.
His love and mercy are so great that He gave His only Son to die for us and he did that for people to still treat him horribly by using his name in vain. This is why He is so radical to teach us to even love our enemies. and like he said try not to judge and label people.
In today’s Gospel Jesus is telling us that we can’t gossip and talk about people behind their backs and expect everyone to be nice to us. Whatever we do to others has an impact on our lives, if we forgive we will be forgiven, if we condemn we will be condemned.
give what you have for it was a blessing from God in the first place give it to someone who needs it more than you do and God will return to you what you’ve given away and give you more in return.
I think the scripture is trying to tell us that Jesus likes the little things that we do. We don’t have to give a million dollars to the poor to get into heaven. We have to do the small stuff that people look over. The small stuff isn’t really small to the person that’s helping. The small things we do for others are a bigger reward in heaven because nobody likes to do the small things because as humans we want to do the big things that will give us a lot of praise and admiration, but Jesus tells us today that the small things will help us enter heaven more than the little things will help us.
It’s kind of like the golden rule. If you forgive you will be forgiven, if you stop judging you will not be judged. Treat others the way you want to be treated. God is the ultimate judge. Do not let someone’s judgment of you matter. That being said, do not judge. God is the only one who should be judging. He knows all and we don’t. God is just and he loves everyone. He knows what is good for you. If you do what is right you will be rewarded but don’t do it for a reward. Do it for the good of others.
In this scripture God is trying to say that we should not judge others and that we love our enemies. If another person judges you, be ready to forgive them and not judge them back. It is easy to judge people because it makes us look cool but we should do the opposite and be kind. If we are talking behind someones back, it should be a compliment.
Basically this is telling us treat others how you would want to be treated. So if you want to be judged go and judge other people. if you want to be treated with kindness go treat others with kindness. I believe that that’s what is going to change the world because if you expect kindness from everyone you meet but then talk bead about people and bully them, how are you going to get respect back from somebody who you didn’t give a chance to know. What we need to do is love other people that is the basic way to get to Heaven. Today Love yourself and other people.
When God speaks, He always speaks the truth. He always knows what to say, and at what time to say it. He is all-knowing and all-powerful. This is why we should always listen to Him, or at least try to hear Him. If we listen to God He will tell us exactly what we need to know to get back to Him. That is also why we have silence; so that we can hear His call and respond to it.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged.” This stood out to me because every single person will judge someone in their lifetime. If we stop judging people and accepting them for who they are then everyone will be happy. We won’t have to worry about being made fun of or getting anxiety/depression. But God knows the struggles that we face. He gives us challenges to get through our days. No matter how hard things will get, just know that God will be there for you and He knows that you can get through it. We need to learn that judging others isn’t right and that we need to stop judging people so we can make the world a better and safer place.
We need to treat others as Jesus would treat them. Jesus wouldn’t mock, scorn, judge, or condemn others, so why should we? Jesus knows best after all.
what the scripture is telling me is that we should follow the golden rule and and to do things the way we would want other people to do things for us. to give and to get given are similar because it puts you in this spot of overflowing grace and a cycle on giving and receiving.
I think the scripture is very simple. If you do something for another person you will always get it back, even if the person does not return the favor. You will be rewarded in heaven. When you do something good, you are not just helping someone else, you are also helping yourself to get to heaven.
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Stop judging and you will not be judged.”
This phrase stuck out to me because all we ever do is judge each other. Someone makes a mistake and then we judge them and say that they are dumb because they made a mistake. We should all stop judging each other because it is not what God wants from us. He made each of us in a unique way and he doesn’t want us to be judged.
there is a simple cause and effect in this world. depending on what you do here on earth will correlate with what happens to you in the afterlife. if you do a bunch of bad things in your life and you renounce the name of a god you will be dealt with accordingly. if you keep holy the lords name and you do good things it will pay off in the end with eternal life with God in heaven.
I think this scripture passage is saying that if we don’t judge people, they won’t judge you. If you don’t want to be judged, don’t judge others. This is an example of the golden rule; treat others how you would want to be treated. Nobody likes being judged, so why judge other people?
If we want to be with God and be treated well, we must show that with others. When we forgive others, we are forgiving ourselves and letting ourselves get closer with Jesus Christ and inviting Him into our lives. He loved each and every creation on Earth and we should show respect for God’s creation by treating it with respect and love.
What you put into something you will get the same or more out of it. Like effort, you can learn something out of doing it and experience something new. You should always “measure” what “measure” you want back to you.
Treat people how you would want to be treated. Don’t go out in the world and treat people badly because someday you will be treated badly and then you will know how it feels to be treated that way. God created us all and if you treat one of God’s creations like they are nothing then you will be treated like you are nothing.
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Stop judging and you will not be judged.
Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Today i think this gospel is trying to tell us to act as if Jesus was right beside you. Jesus gave us mercy and freedom of life. He wants us to be happy, He wants us to succeed. He also says stop judging and you will not be judged. That means if you listen and follow his word and path. The gates of heaven awaits you/
In today’s Gospel, Jesus teaches us how to treat others correctly. We shouldn’t judge anyone or gossip. We should be merciful and kind to them, and keep the bad things to our self.
We should always try to stay close to Jesus. We are called to help each other live a good holy life. By doing this we can make it to heaven.
Treating others as you would like to be treated is what this Scripture is about. Treat others with kindness and that kindness will be given back somehow. Care for others and you will be rewarded with a life with God.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged.” I feel like as a person we judge a lot even if we don’t mean to. We have our own opinions about people but we are all Gods creation and he created us not to be judged or be judge.
today’s gospel is saying that if you want good things to be done to you do good to other people. if you want someone to like you and be nice to you you have to do the same things to them. Get what we are willing to give we can’t give nothing and expect to get every thing in return.
This scripture is really good to remember. the line that says “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. ” i think it is really important because it reminds us about God and what he has done for us. another sentence that really stuck out to me was “Stop judging and you will not be judged.” because in this world now there is so much criticism and hate against others. People judge others for the littlest things and its not right.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged.” I think we gossip way too much. I know that I sometimes say something about someone behind their back not even realizing it. Even if they don’t know I’m gossiping about them, it’s still wrong, Jesus says to Stop Judging, we should seriously take that into consideration and think about how gossiping might affect others. We don’t know what peoples lives are like outside of our viewpoint, so don’t make assumptions, and don’t spread rumors.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.” This phrase stuck out to me. I think it’s saying the greatest message of the commandments, treat your neighbor as yourself. Also reminds me of the saying from the Bible “Remove the board in your own eye before pointing out the splinter in your brother’s” We have to recognize our own faults, and fix them. If we don’t want to be gossiped about, then stop gossiping.
In the scripture today i think Jesus is saying that we shouldn’t be rude to others maybe because we think they aren’t good as we are. They all matter and everyone in the world should be treated with respect and should never be put down. If we are like this Jesus will be proud of us for being nice and that the reward is being able to go to heaven.
At the start of this scripture God says to the people “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.” I think this is mainly talking to our generation now because we are all thinking of what people think of us and not to just go out and spread the word of God.
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful” We need to be merciful. We need to forgive because no one is perfect. If we are merciful to others then God will be merciful to us.
This is a pretty simple lesson to understand. We are disliked by other people because we so often dislike others. If we are an overall positive and good person to the people around us.
I think this is really focusing on forgiveness, and being able to forgive others. Even people that hurt Jesus and did not love Jesus, he still forgave and still said that he loved and cared about them and wanted the best things for them. Instead most humans would have just held a grudge or said mean stuff back.
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap.For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” LK 6:36-38″ I think that this passage is telling us that all that we do is seen by Him. He knows if we have good intentions of bad and I think that shows that we need to help our brothers and sisters no matter if we get a reward or not.
Today in scripture it’s saying whatever you say will come back to you. If you are to do something good, something good will most likely happen to you. If we are to act out or be rude to someone, why shouldn’t we expect to get treated the same way back? It all relates to the phrase “Treat others the way you want to be treated”.
This scripture made me immediately think of the golden rule. Be merciful and don’t judge, and in return that’ll happen to you. We are constantly reminded that we should treat others how we want to be treated, yet we don’t do that anyway. I think that we should try to remember that God will always be with us, and that he will reward us for all the good things we do.
This scripture is talking about how we should not judge because if we do we will get judged ourselves and that every little thing that we do it will be taken against us.
It is saying that we should not gossip or hurt others, if we do then it will happen to us. We need to try and forgive others even if they did something terrible we were made to forgive everyone no matter what. Jesus didn’t judge anyone or try to hurt anyone. He loves us even if we did something terrible. We should follow Jesus’ example.
I think the Scripture is saying we can’t judge others. A lot of people judge others when they are really insecure about themselves. Jesus never judged anyone. We definitely shouldn’t judge others for their mistakes. Everyone is human and everyone makes mistakes. The only people who didn’t make mistakes were Mary and God. We should always accept people for who they are and we should not judge.
I think the scripture is saying that we must treat others as we would like to be treated by the Father. If we have no mercy or forgiveness to others God will not forgive us and give us any of the grace we would receive when we forgive and have mercy towards others. If we choose to treat others with judgement and call them names and only see them as one thing such as being weird or being different, God will treat us as we have treated others.
If you broke you mom’s favorite vase you are not going to get rewarded with ice cream. If you break your dad’s TV you are not going to go to the arcade. So why would God reward you for all the bad things you have done. You have to put in and effort to et something out of it. If I want to get to heaven I need to try. If you fail at something try try again.
Jesus calls us today to forgive our neighbors and to be merciful with them. I think this is hard for us to actually do. Think about your family. How often are you merciful with your siblings? I know I’m not always the nicest to my siblings. If my sister irritates me, I get angry. It’s hard to forgive those we know so well. But I know I have to. I have to forgive her. I have to forgive because otherwise I do nothing to help heal the world, I only make it more broken. Forgive those around you even when it’s difficult.
The golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated or do to others as you want them to do to you. don’t judge and you won’t be judged. God is in everybody. so if you do to someone wrongly you do to God wrong.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged.
If you stop being mean to people then you will become nicer, if you stop judging people about what they look like or whatever maybe you will stop being judged
“Forgive and you will be forgiven.” I think we need to forgive more than we hold grudges. Ifwe hold grudges aginst other people than other people will hold grudges aginst us. So be like Christ and Forgive even if its hard.
God will be the final judge of our lives and He judges justly. If we are not going to Mass every Sunday and obeying the Lord then we will have a punishment that is either purgatory or hell.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged.” This stuck out to me because we need to stop judging others. We need to be following in God’s footsteps and do what’s right. We need to be bringing others up not down. Support one another and dont judge.
basically what this scripture reflection says to me is that you get what you deserve or karma if your mean to a person they wont talk to you like it says if you don’t judge others you will not be judged so basically treat others as you want to be treated
What goes around comes around or in other words karma. If you treat others badly you won’t be liked if you are mean to other people out of spite it’s going to come back to bite you. Love your neighbor as yourself and you will get to heaven.
We often judge other people by how they look, act, or talk. Maybe they look better or worse than you or they talk to much. Instead of judging them, we should talk to them. No matter what, all humans are created by God Himself and because of that they deserve respect instead of judgment. By caring and loving others, we can show that we care for everyone.
What goes around comes around. The Golden rule. Almost every religion has this: Do good, and you will receive good things. Hinduism has karma, Catholics have this scripture passage, and the Islams have Al-Kaffarah. (Which is the Islam version of karma.) This is one of the most universally known things. Do good things, and good things come to you.
Today the scripture said to me the golden rule. To treat others as you want to be treated. “Stop judging and you will not be judged.” this says what you do to others will happen to you. This means you should always be kind and treat others with respect. When we do this we will also have people be kind and respectful toward us. If we do this we will be happy.
3/6/23 Treat someone good and you will be treated good in return. This is also known as the Golden rule treat others as you want to be treated
“Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.” This stuck out to me because if we judge other people in any way then we will be judged back by them and by God. But also if we forgive someone for what they did then we will be forgiven by them and by God. I think that this scripture is trying to say whatever you do to others or to God will be done back to you by others or by God.
“Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.” we are constantly accusing others, but we fail to see the true committers of sins, ourselves. We are so egotistical that we cannot accept that we are imperfect, people barely ever say that they did something wrong, they either pin it on someone else or they lie and say the didn’t do it altogether. we need to fess up for our sins and ignore our ego.
God will be the final judge of our lives and He judges justly. We are called to judge as fathers, mothers, teachers, judges, etc., but when we judge it must be based on God’s laws and He is love and mercy with justice.God doesn’t look at our whole life only the end to see if we have changed. People also think death is the final end when really it is just a new beginning to a new life.
What stuck out to me was be ready to forgive. This stuck out to me because sometimes I feel like I just don’t think I’m ready to forgive and then I never do. I think this meant for us to just forgive even though it might be hard and you want to hold it off you should just forgive.
“Forgive and you will be forgiven.” We are all human. Humans make mistakes, therefore everyone makes mistakes. Mistakes will happen, so we need to be king, loving, and forgiving towards others. We tend to hold grudges against others, which can become unhealthy. We would want to be forgiven, so we should forgive others. The gospel today is pointing towards the golden rule.
“Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.”
Pretty much Jesus is saying we must stop keeping things for ourselves and give to others, forgive people who hurt you and in return we will be forgiven and we will get something in return
we should not judge others because that’s Gods job and he just wants us to worry about our selves.
to treat people how you want to be treated and show the true love of God
