Verse of the Day 4-29-22

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:37-38

The four exhortations in these verses are in response to God’s graciousness to his people and pick up on the earlier reference to rewards from God. The command not to judge is paralleled with the command not to condemn and therefore refers not to the use of discernment but to a final cutting off from the possibility of God’s favor. In contrast to these prohibitions, Jesus’ disciples are to forgive as they experience God’s forgiveness. Because withholding forgiveness and refusing to be generous in mercy reveal our lack of awareness of God’s great forgiveness and mercy to us.
