Judgy, Judgy Church…

judge
11 Don’t speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters.[a] If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God’s law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you. 12 God alone, who gave the law, is the Judge. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to judge your neighbor? (James 4:11-12 NLT)

Read: Ezekiel 40:28-49, Ezekiel 41, James 4, Psalms 118:19-20, Proverbs 28:3-5

Relate: One of the most common responses I hear in my classroom when I ask a student to stop talking is, “What about _(insert name)_? She was talking a second ago.” This drives me nuts. I am not concerned in that moment with adding to discussion. What I want right then is for the distraction to end. The rule is in place so the class can have the best learning environment possible. I don’t need a student to judge what the other students should and should not be doing. I will deal with each student individually. The class functions best, and the students learn the most, when each student follows the rules without trying to judge one another.
