Judging and Actions
This is such a basic concept. I learned it when I was in Sunday school as a child. But going back and reading it now... This can be hard, or maybe it's something I'm struggling with more at this time in my life. I think and talk about how I want to be, and often this comes up because I see someone doing something I don't want to do in my life. Sometimes I can be pretty hard on the person who is doing something wrong. But I'll have moments every so often where I realize I am doing exactly that thing that I judged that person so harshly for. It doesn't make it okay for me or them to do... But I think this is a reminder to remember Christ's forgiveness, and be humbled, not thinking of ourselves as better than others, but saved only because of the grace extended to us. It is really a mental exercise to think first of grace, not of judgement. And it sure can be a challenge for me!
