    you must read the next line to get the whole idea. This is taking about if you have a mote in your eye and you are trying to pull out of someone else's. 1st Corinthians 6 chapter say's we shall judge angels so we can judge small things. There are different forms of judging . If this is the case then we should not judge someone if they sleep with your wife or if someone in one's family is murdered

    God, and indeed the Bible admonishes everyone to love, and love is the summary of God's twelve commandments. Genuine agape love for our neighbours and for God is what God require from us. Therefore if we expect other to love us, we must love them also, love is the fulfilment of the law .

    God is always reminding us to have obedience on his words and accept God as our Savior, our Lord and the Lover of our Soul. Jesus himself is the word of God and he came down and shed his blood to us so that all of us will have life in abundance. We must keep thanking Jesus and praised him for everything he have done into our lives. We are saved by his Grace and he is faithful to his promises. Amen
