Judge nothing before the time: 1 Corinthians 4.5

“So then, do not judge anything before the time. Wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the motives of hearts. Then each will receive recognition from God.”

1 Corinthians 4.5

Man judges differently than God does. Either he is critical and demeaning, or he puts his fellow man on a pedestal. Paul had to deal with both in Corinth.

Jesus requires that we judge with righteous judgment, even in relation to himself, Jo 7.24. That means we judge as God has revealed. Motives of the heart should await his final judgment.
