Study 9 From the Book of Matthew is: Matthew 7:1-12
- Compare verses 1-5 with verses 6, 16; and see Jn. 7:24. If judging is not always wrong, what is our Lord here condemning?
- What is he teaching of verses 7:12 on the practice of prayers? What place is there for persistency, and what place for trusting? Is there any conflict between these two ideas?
Note. Verse 6. This indicates that, while Christians must not be guilty of condemning anyone, they must learn to discriminate in their witness cf. Pr. 9:8.
