Not misjudge, not despise
Two things to not put our hands on: - not to misjudge people - if they did something wrong, forgive them Do not despise others. Sometimes they don’t know. I think it relates to scorning. Luke 18:9 “And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:” False trusting in selves. Not walking in lowliness of mind. Forgetting that He is our righteousness. Not esteeming others more highly than ourselves. Titus 3:2-4 “To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of Elohiym our Saviour toward man appeared,” If we’re really walking in lowliness of mind, we will realize how nothing we are, know we’re not any better. When we think we’re righteous, we despise others. If we’re walking in lowliness of mind, we will treat others right. Philippians 2:3 “[Let] nothing [be done] through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.” Won’t despise others. The proud are ones who scorn. We’re supposed to be examining ourselves, the beam in our own eye (“And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” Matthew 7:3). Not judging by appearance. Judges in the law were to make diligent search before making a judgement. –Not rushing into something, finding fault. If someone is doing evil, we should be getting down on our knees and praying for them. Sometimes we have forgotten what state we’re in. He scorneth the scorners, but giveth grace unto the lowly. (“Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.” Proverb 3:34) Think: we would handle matters better if we would be walking in lowliness of mind: If we see someone overtaken in a fault, we would handle it better if walking in lowliness of mind; we would not despise. We’re open books to one another. Hope we could always consider how we are conducting ourselves in the house of Yahveh – quicken us to lowliness of mind.
