Luther on judging, my thoughts, 3

Some kinds of sermons! The Lord Christ's succinct and short and Luther's going on and on.

That was indeed mostly law. Here we can see an example of how the law is preached to Christians, also. And do we not need to hear this lesson over and over? These are not silly man-made rules. (On another blog we had a heated discussion about the third use of the law/ see Book of Concord).

We do judge, just as described. It sure hit home with me. Guilty as charged. There is this despicable judging everywhere: in homes, in extended families, schools, work places. It is terribly unfair and unbecoming. May we become gracious people as we have received grace.
