Judging Others

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:5 - You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:6 - “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

The Narrow and Wide Gates

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:13 - “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:14 - But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

True and False Prophets

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:15 - “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:16 - By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:17 - Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:18 - A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:19 - Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

True and False Disciples

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:21 - “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:22 - Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:24 - “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:25 - The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:26 - But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:27 - The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:28 - When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:29 - because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
