Cancel The Trip To Judgment Camp

It's like: The pot calling the kettle black; looking for a speck in your friend's eye when there's a block of wood in your own; the blind leading the blind; the glazed donut telling the frosted donut that he's missing something right in the middle.

Jesus warns us against judging others, or judgment will come to us as well. He talks about this in Luke:
Luke 6:37-40 (New Living Translation)

37 "Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back."

39 Then Jesus gave the following illustration: "Can one blind person lead another? Won't they both fall into a ditch? 40 Students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher."

The Son of Man [Jesus] came to seek and save what was lost. And you, as His follower, are to be seeking those that are lost as well. Let God be the judge. Cancel your trip to "Judgment Camp". You give of yourself and seek to serve the lost around you. Bring them closer to Him.
