As the conclusion to the series, this article holds out the restoration that God in Christ can bring to relationships broken by judgmentalism. Sande gives practical insight on what personal sanctification in this matter of judging might look like. He also speaks of the "expectant charity" we can hold toward someone who has done wrong in the past, as we can expect to observe increasing evidence of God's grace in our own lives and theirs.
What tendencies do you have in the judgments you make about others? In this first of a three-part series, Ken Sande reflects on judging by way of passages such as Matthew 7:1–6 and 1 Corinthians 13:4–7, with a view to offering practical suggestions on how to make godly, charitable judgments about others.
