The meaning of judgment here is that man should not judge in [bad] attitude. We, as humans, tend to look down on other people when we judge. Many times it is those people who are "morally straight" or the best Christians that tend to be the harshest critics. The reason being that now-a-days it seems that the act of judging is a right.
I've heard from people before, "I can judge because of the moment that person let go of his/her morals." When we see other people committing a sin we find it okay for us to look down on that person for the simple reason of that person is the sinner and at that moment we are not. However, we are not always free of such claims. The reason being that everyone is a sinner.
The same people who are judging the sinners are sinners themselves. That's the thing about life -- it tends to be very ironic. No one is [perfect] therefore no one person is in a higher position to look down upon another. It doesn't matter if the other person's wrongdoing is more severe then one's own; each person is accountable for his or her own actions. For that reason since every individual is in charge of what he or she does, the rest of us are really in no position to judge.
I'm not perfect, you're not perfect -- we're all not perfect -- knowing that we should give one another some slack and learn not to judge but rather understand. Because you never really know the reasons or thoughts behind the actions of someone else unless you have walked in their shoes.
Have you ever felt like you have been judged because of your sin? Since we are all sinners, how can we be less judgmental?
