This morning I was reading some scriptural text from an old classmate. He was giving his views of what the Bible says and it was definitely God-inspired as he saw it. Some of it was actually quite good. Afterwards, he began spouting his political views which differ from mine. I always question how someone could quote God but not love all of His creation. At that very moment, a light came on and I realized this was just exactly what I was doing!! I was judging this man while questioning his authenticity and intelligence.
Previously I had seen a cartoon of a dog chasing his tail and the caption read how easy it is to entertain and amuse a dog by chasing his own tail. Then the author said that he thought he had been amused by this for almost ten minutes! That, too, hit home for me.
Philippians 2:15 reads “So that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.” This is only true without judgment; leaving all judgment to God.
