The Unchanging Law of Judgment

With what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.
This statement is not some haphazard theory, but it is an eternal law of G-d. Whatever judgment you give will be the very way you are judged. There is a difference between retaliation and retribution. The basis of life is retribution— "with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you." If you have been shrewd in finding out the shortcomings of others, remember that will be exactly how you will be measured. The way you pay is the way life will pay you back. This eternal law works from G-d’s throne down to us (see Psalm 18:25-26 ). Yochanan the Immerser began his ministry, ‘preaching a Mikveh of repentance for the remission of sins. Who of us would dare to stand before G-d and say, "My G-d, judge me as I have judged others"? We have judged others as sinners— if G-d should judge us in the same way, we would be condemned to hell. Yet G-d judges us on the basis His compassionate grace.
