Context: Matthew 7:1–6 delivers Jesus’ declaration that His followers must not pronounce God’s judgment on each other. Those who do try to take God’s role in this way will be judged in the same way themselves. Human beings are not qualified to pronounce judgment because they are blind to their own sin. To help another with a speck in his eye, a person must first remove the log of obvious sin from his own eye. He also warns against wasting time or effort on those who clearly have no interest; they won’t appreciate it and may attack you for it.
