"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 7:1-3

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.
