What is righteous judgment?


Do not judge according to appearance, but according to righteous judgment.’

John 7:24

Jesus had a habit of subverting the cultural and religious norms of His day in favor of a higher purpose – in this case healing a man on the Sabbath (an apparent breaking of the Law). While there is certainly a place for tradition and ritual, Christ shows us repeatedly in the Gospels that these take a backseat to helping, healing, and loving others.
