Mind Your Own Business
Summary: Every Christian today seems well groomed in the phrase, "Judge not, lest ye be judged." But Scripture makes it clear that "judging" (authoritative decision-making based on the Word of God) is a necessary part of a healthy society, business, church, family, and individual life. For instance, if a father doesn't have the ability to bring judgment in his home, his little children will run wild without proper discipline and punishment. There is an arrogant and improper way to judge, and there is a humble, heavenly way to judge. It is imperative that the Church of Jesus Christ learns how to judge rightly.
