Just stop doing it!
One day I was wondering why it is so easy to judge others harshly. I know I can fall into that trap, especially when it is a 'group'. Again, I wondered, what would Jesus say to me about this:
So I begin:
My son, Christians have a habit of judging those harshly who sin in ways that they do not. In doing this they forget their own sins and failures. Any kind of judgment that comes from a place of anger, resentment, and yes hypocrisy is often the greater sin. I meant what I said my son, remove the log from your own eye first.
I the Lord am the only one who can judge the interior of my children in truth. Anyone else who does it goes against my will. To sin is like taking a knife and stabbing oneself in the heart. What bleeds out is love, and if it bleeds enough, the heart becomes devoid of love and dies.
On the cross, I could forgive all because I see into the hearts of each man and woman and understand all. That is why my judgments are never unjust but always based on love and compassion. I came to save not to condemn. Mankind is the one who does that. A soul who rejects me, does so freely, after a long loving pursuit by me.
So when it comes to judging the interior of others; well, just stop it!--Br.MD
