People are at their worst when they pretend or refuse to forgive, and people are certainly at their very worst when they refuse to let you forget your mistakes, and prefer to remind you so that you won’t forget your mistakes. All the while ignoring their own flaws.
But such is the way of the world.
Within the realm of the sin nature, there is always the drive of inordinate competition, and the drive to control. And what better way to control someone else, than to remind them of their flaws and mistakes.
Everyone who has ever lived in this world, has made mistakes.
No one has the right to judge anyone else, unless they themselves are perfect, which no one is.
And the plea or prayer here, is that those who would superimpose themselves over us, and even try to rejoice over our failures or flaws, and even try to elevate themselves because of our flaws, will themselves not have the advantage or benefit from their judgmental and controlling attitude against us.
And the answer to the prayer, is that God is the ultimate and sovereign judge, and people are not.
People who judge others, in effect judge themselves.
People who attempt to elevate themselves as the better, will always lose, will always fail, and will themselves be guilty of far worse than any flaw or mistake that you have committed or that they remind you of.
