It seems hardly a day goes by that I have to address the problem of judging other people.
Many times it may be someone I don’t even know but I hear about them through the media. Every time I judge another individual I eventually realize that there is something in me that is worse than the fault I am finding in someone else.
God is always faithful to show me what it is because when I focus on something I don’t like in others it becomes a barrier between Him and me.
My only recourse when that happens is to confess my fault and forgive the other person. I am grateful for His patience with me and the mercy He shows me when I confess my sin.
I pray for His help so that when I am critical of others, God will fill my heart with thoughts of mercy towards them.
