Don’t Engage In Judging Others

18 Jun

“When someone judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs.” ~ Lulu

On any given week, there are upwards of fifteen judge shows on television like Judge Judy.  It’s amazing that these shows are so popular.  Then again, maybe not so amazing.  After all, we spend a lot of time judging others, don’t we?

We judge people on their appearance, on their nationality, on their skin color, on their height, on their weight, on their geographic location, on their political persuasion, on their sexual orientation, on their — well, I think you get the picture.

Jesus said, “The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.”  Jesus was quite serious about that.  He was serious about everything He said.

We need to remember that, if we do not want to risk a harsh judgement, we must not judge others harshly either.  There are always circumstances about which we know very little, if anything at all, that may make our judgment entirely false.

FAITH ACTION:  Have you been very critical of someone or judged that person harshly?  Rethink your position.  And, perhaps, make amends.
