1. According to truth - v.2
2. According to men's deeds - v.6
3. According to men's hearts - v.16
Men in general and the Jews in particular judge according to biased, self-righteous comparison. We are quick to see in others the things we are struggling with ourselves. This is a good way to examine our own hearts - look at the things that others do that irritate us and first judge ourselves. (Matthew 7:1-5) We also tend to think that knowledge of the law or truth is equal to obeying it. God says this is deceiving. (James 1:22) We also pride ourselves in not practicing certain sins in action but at the same time we are guilty of the same or worse in our hearts. (Matthew 5:21,27)
God sees and knows and will accurately judge all sin! All men are sinners! I need to concentrate on judging myself instead of others so that I will not be judged by God. Thank God that Jesus was willing to take God's wrath for my sin!
Walk with the Lord and let Him judge!!!
