on unrighteous judgement

Romans 2:
So I was reading Romans 2 and man God was just revealing to me my heart. That is has been petty, unforgiving, unloving, and just hardened by bitterness. I have been judging the people of this world, my teachers and fellow Christians and this chapter has just made me realize how wrong it is of me and why. We have to hold people accountable for their actions because that is what keeps us on that narrow path and before God. But if we never pour out our hearts convictions to that person, if we bring to their knowledge what their actions look to the world on a surface level than we are doing them no good. They may be ignorant of the things that they are doing and how the unrighteousness of it is distancing them from God. But we are not, we differentiate from what is ungodly and what is righteous. We are not ignorant and so we judge. But where this becomes a sin is by not doing anything to help them, God gave his beloveds the gift of wisdom, to know him if we so choose. Our judgements than of other people become as Romans 2:1 says inexcusable, we become condemned to the judgement of God for our judging of his people because we at some point in our lives have done the same thing the people we are judging are doing. And if we hadn't had someone who was in the word and who saw the unrighteousness of our ignorant deeds but not the righteousness of our hearts than they never would have came to us  and said hey this thing that your doing it isn't right, it isn't according to the word of God. That takes love. Doing something for the betterment of another person.
