Verse for today

I seem to have skipped this over before. I've read Romans 1 a bunch of times, and I've heard it taught on over and over. Romans 2 is the point Paul is getting to by bringing up the sins in the first chapter. He says, "for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things." (v1) But then I hit verse 4. This hit me.

"Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?"

Contempt for God's character when we judge others. Ouch.
