Good Afternoon Everyone!
Today an extremely quick hitter on Judgment. Have you ever been judged on your appearance, circumstances you were involved in, or a group you were a part of? Or, conversely have you been the one doing the judging? Who are we to place ourselves in such stature? Doing right or wrong certainly falls somewhere in a moral barometer with all of us, but doesn't have to be a tool used to destroy and degrade. Think about that next time you chose to react or judge someone based on the criteria above. There is so much to be said about how perception differs from reality. Instead of reacting next time, try using discernment and feeling. What you think of a person based on worldly things can be so far from the truth. Can't tell you how many times I've been wrong and hope I can be better. I hope any of you that has struggled in this area can be better too.
“Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Matthew 7:3-5
Somber message on a Monday I know, but conversation struck me and I had to write.
Hope everyone is having a great day!
