STOP AND THINK – Stop judging others and offer grace instead. Remember, judgment is simply seeing yourself as superior. Stop it in its tracks. (Gail Rodgers, freelance writer)
It’s seems to be part of our human nature to be critical. We criticize someone who talks, looks, dresses, acts differently from us. Sometimes we pass judgment on what someone does because we secretly think we could do it better. Whatever the occasion, as Rodgers suggests, many of our criticisms come from our feeling of pride. Not a pleasant thought!
Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you (Matthew 7:1-2).
