“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?” – Matthew 7: 1-3

Jesus Christ spoke of the importance of being able to recognize our own faults and being able to work on those flaws. There are examples in the Bible where Jesus wanted people to be able to see the truth and for the truth to set them free. We are able to see this in the manner in which Jesus wants His disciples to understand the importance of being able to recognize their flaws and work on being better Christians and apostles. We see this in the example of the tax collectors that were not looked positively by the society of that time, yet Jesus called on a tax collector to become His apostle.

We know that this allows us to understand that there were individuals that were judged upon in those times, Jesus wants us to know that He is able to change us and make us better. Jesus preached to tax collectors and to multiple different sectors of society. He did not preach only to those from a specific region or status. He wanted to reach individuals that would be able to see how Jesus Christ is able to change our lives.

Jesus Christ did not judge the tax collector or those that were sick or the priests, but attempted to learn about them and if there was something that was not consistent, He made sure to remind them of the need to change these judgments. Jesus was able to preach on topics that were important and still are important, but He also allows us to understand that we are able to learn from His word.

“No juzguen para no ser juzgados. Porque con la misma vara que midan seran medidos, y con la misma porcion que den se les dara. Porque ven el error de su hermano, cuando ustedes tienen el mismo error.” – Mateo 7: 1-3

Mateo 7: 1-3 Pasaje de la Biblia Audio Minuto

Jesus el Cristo hablo de la importancia de reconocer nuestros errores y trabajar en esos errores. En la Biblia hay lugares donde dice que Jesus queria que la gente pudiera ver la verdad y que la verdad los cambiaria y los haria libres. Podemos ver esto en la manera que Jesus quiere que sus dicipulos entiendan la importancia de reconocer los errores y trabajen en ser mejores Cristianos y apostoles. Vemos esto en el ejemplo de los colecionistas de impuestos que no eran vistos favoreciblemente en los tiempos pasados, pero Jesus llamo a un colecionista de impuestos a ser su apostol.

Sabemos que esto nos ayuda a entender que habian individuos que no eran vistos favoreciblemente en esos tiempos, pero Jesus nos dice que Jesus puede hacer cambiar eso y ayudarnos. Jesus predico a los colecionistas de los impuestos y a diferentes individuos de diferentes sectores de la sociedad. Predicaba a personas de diferentes regiones y estatus. Queria predicar para que supieran que Jesus el Cristo podia cambiarles la vida.

Jesus el Cristo no juzgaba a los colecionistas de impuestos o a los enfermos o a los sacerdotes, pero queria saber sobre ellos y veia algo que podia resolverse predicaba sobre ese tema. Jesus el Cristo predico sobre muchos temas que son importantes y que todavia se pueden usar, y quiere que aprendamos de la palabra de DIOS.
