Better take a look in the mirror

Mirror mirror...

You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you who judge others do these very same things.
Romans 2:1
(emphasis mine)

Better take a look in the mirror before I judge someone’s choices.
Better take a look in the mirror before I climb up on my high horse.
Better take a look in the mirror before I raise my eyebrows and look down my nose at someone (you know that look) for the wrong choices they’ve made.
Better take a look in the mirror before I take up a picket sign and protest.
Better take a look in the mirror before I judge how “Christian” someone is.
Better take a look in the mirror before I condemn someone to hell.

Because if God forgives me of all the stuff that I’ve done and continue to do, how can I possibly treat people like they deserve anything less than love? How can I act like I’m the only one who deserves God’s grace? I cannot be quick to condemn others because I deserve the same condemnation.
