4th Sunday After Trinity – Church Back Home – June 19, 2016

Today’s Gospel reading is one that many feel they know, but some don’t really grasp. Look at the words in the King James Version and not some popular paraphrase, and you see the promise that you will be given as you give. Don’t judge, and you won’t be judged. Don’t condemn, and you won’t be condemned. In other words, you’re off the hook so long as you don’t put someone else on the hook!

This is a great idea in so many ways. To begin with, how much do we know about the greater scheme of things, in the full breadth of God’s vision? Not much, as I see it. And we can stay out of trouble by not making judgments about anything we do not know the full facts about.
