Who are you to pass judgment on my life? "Make certain your hands are clean!" You say. And I reply, "They are clean. How can they be unclean? Do not condemn me before I have come to my Lord and Father." He who lives by faith in Jesus Christ will be saved even if his hand commits crimes during his lifetime.
Faith saves, not works. The Bible is clear on this point. If you want to be saved, you must believe that Jesus died for your sins and then ask him to save you from your sin. Faith in Jesus Christ is what covers our sins and gets us into heaven when we die. Works cannot save anyone; only faith can.
Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again." (John 3:3) Faith without action is useless; action without faith is blasphemous.
You may have faith that God exists but if you don't act like it - love others as much as you love yourself, for example- you haven't done anything useful for him yet. Faith without action is meaningless; action without faith is arrogant.
"Judge a man's character by how he treats strangers and things he does not own." - William Arthur Ward
The way we treat people is the most accurate reflection of our true characters. We can only show others what we want them to see, so it makes sense that our characters are shaped by what we do. Whether we know it or not, everyone sees different things when they look at us. What one person sees as good, another may view as bad.
People will always have opinions about you, whether positive or negative. If you want to be viewed as a good person, you need to make sure your actions match your words. Only you can decide what you do with your life, so take time to think through your decisions carefully. Are they helping other people? Is everything you do in service of others? If you want to be seen as a good judge, then you must also act like one.
We can never really know anything about anyone else's life, but there are some simple ways to come close. We can learn about someone's character by watching their actions.
This is a profound phrase since criticizing others without knowing them is one of the most common things people do in this society. This may be observed on the streets, in schools, in movies, and even in books like Butter by Erin Jade Lange and Bruiser by Neal Shusterman. There are two ways that people are judged by their appearance alone: negatively and positively.
Negatively people are judged based on their physical traits such as height, weight, or skin color. This can be seen in things such as bullying or racial discrimination. Positively people are judged based on their physical traits such as beauty or talent. This can be seen in things such as awards or promotions.
Outside of society some people are judged based on their actions instead of their looks. For example, a person's character is shown through their behavior rather than their appearance. This is also what the author is getting at with this quote since humans are not just judged by their looks but by their actions too. We can't see inside other people's hearts so we must base our judgments on their behaviors.
Overall this quote shows that people are judged by both their looks and their actions. Looks determine how others feel about you while your actions show what kind of person you are.
Famous Judging and Being Judged Quotes
"Life is 10% of what occurs to you and 90% of how you react to it." - Charles Swindoll.
"What a guy does when no one is looking is the actual litmus test of his character." - Warren Buffett.
Secretive by nature, we often like to think that what lies behind our closed doors is of little concern to others. But the fact is, what happens in the bedroom (or anywhere else for that matter) is always something that someone else is watching. Whether it's your partner or your friend, there's always someone around who can reveal your secrets if you let them. So before you ask: yes, everyone knows how men's rooms are designed. Just like women, men need privacy to relieve themselves.
4 of the World's Most Influential Quotes, Revised for Today
President Franklin D. Roosevelt "I want you to judge me by the enemies I have made," Franklin D. Roosevelt said. "That is true measure of any leader."
Judging others or ourselves by our enemies can be useful in learning more about them or us. Our minds are curious and greedy, so we try to fit people into categories for easier understanding. Envy is one such category; it is felt when someone has what we lack and believes we should not have it. We can feel envy towards others' wealth, beauty, or power and sometimes even wish them harm. It is also possible for us to feel envy towards parts of ourselves that other people seem to enjoy having access to - for example, if we think of someone as attractive but know they would never think of themselves as such, then we can still feel envy towards that person. This form of envy is called social envy. There is also physical envy. This is felt when something beautiful or powerful attracts our attention and we want to own it or have similar things. The difference between social and physical envy is important because there are ways of reducing social envy while leaving physical envy untouched. Social envy can be difficult to deal with because we cannot just ask someone to give their money away or take off their clothes for us!
