Luke 6:37-42 - The Sermon On The Plain: On Judging Others

37 "Stop judging, and you'll never be judged. Stop condemning, and you'll never be condemned. Forgive, and you'll be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A large quantity, pressed together, shaken down, and running over will be put into your lap, because you'll be evaluated by the same standard with which you evaluate others."

39 He also told them a parable: "One blind person can't lead another blind person, can he? Both will fall into a ditch, won't they? 40 A disciple is not better than his teacher. But everyone who is fully-trained will be like his teacher.

41 "Why do you see the speck in your brother's eye but fail to notice the beam in your own eye? 42 How can you say to your brother, "Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you don't see the beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you'll see clearly enough to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
