Matthew 7.1 is my least favorite verse of just about all of Christian scripture, because it’s the most abused and taken-out-of-context verse of just about all of Christian scripture. Usually and most commonly it’s quoted by people who live a life outside scriptural morality as a club to beat down other people who try to call them out on it. Sometimes it’s used as a means of justifying one’s own actions by bringing up all the similar Bad Things™ done by those who might call us out on it.
