It is so easy to look at others and judge what they are doing. But who am I to judge? What arrogance and blasphemy. If I am judging, it’s one specific thing that perhaps I am getting right in my life. But there are so many other ways I fail. So before I get on my high horse I had better just stand down. Because one day I will be judged by one far more worthy than me. And it will be a total judging. A sum of all the parts. Until then I should smile at my fellow sinners with recognition and understanding,. I should see myself in all the frailty and failing. I should pray for my brothers and sisters and ask them to pray for me to the Lord our God.
Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
