Stop judging by the outward appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.—John 7:24.

 

Through his prophecy about our Lord Jesus Christ, Isaiah warms and reassures our hearts. Isaiah foretold that Jesus would “not judge by what appears to his eyes, nor reprove simply according to what his ears hear.” He would “judge the lowly with fairness.” (Isa. 11:3, 4) Why is this encouraging? Because we live in a world filled with bias and prejudice. We all long for the perfect Judge, who will never judge us by our outward appearance! Each day we make judgments about people. Yet, as imperfect humans, we are not able to judge matters perfectly as Jesus does. We tend to be influenced by what appears to our eyes. Nonetheless, when Jesus was on earth, he commanded us, not to judge by “the outward appearance,” but to judge “with righteous judgment.” Clearly, Jesus wants us to be like him and not judge others by their outward appearance. w18.08 8 ¶1-2

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

We don't judge people as well s when we go in our ministry. We refrain to refer people as sheep or goat. Jesus will be the judge in the near future not anyone of us. As long as this system of things continues, there's still time for people to get to know Jehovah or return to him. 

All glory and praises goes to Jehovah :)
