The Loudest Boos Come From Those in the Cheap Seats

Matthew 7:1-5

 
There is a great lesson to be learned from baseball. There is no Monday Morning Quarterback like in football. The Monday Morning Quarterback (a.k.a. Armchair Quarterback). It refers to someone who doesn’t participate in the action, but still makes judgement about it and believes he or she can make better decisions than anyone in the game.
 
This is a great analogy for Jesus’ teaching on “Don’t judge, so that you will not be judged.” At the same time this does not mean we are free from accountability. When we participate in the game, we have the responsibility to hold each other accountable. As followers of Jesus, accountability starts with the person in the mirror.

 

Reflect on…
1) Ask yourself, “What logs do I have in my own eye?”
2) What will you do to be more engaged, empathetic and authentic in your judging?
