Many times scriptures cautions us not to 'judge' others but judgment itself is a reality throughout the scriptures. The focus we choose must be the righteousness of God not the rightness of others (or ourselves). Scripture is clear that all will bow before God one day. We will be accountable for our own lives--and the lives of those we led astray by our witness. What a waste of time to be focusing on 'sin' in others when we have so much within ourselves. Judah condemned her sister when the greater condemnation was for herself. May that not be our witness!
We are to allow the Spirit to search us and try us; it is dangerous not to do that. It is far too easy to hide behind 'religion' and opinions of right and wrong...the devil helps us every step of the way. Sometimes the devil uses lies to comfort us and sometimes to attack us. The Word pierces our souls and purifies us by providing the Light in our own soul. As we live by the Light within, others will see Him. That is the Light source that will transform us; it prepares us for our eternal inheritance.
Our choice is this: inherit ourselves or inherit the Kingdom of God. God allowed Judah to inherit 'herself' and her ways. It was ugly because her pursuits had been ugly. Let's run after God, so He can pour Himself into our lives!
