If I take a cup it can only hold so much liquid. Fill that cup with milk, then I only have so much room for another beverage. Then not only do I have limited space, but I have now diluted what was there originally. Mix chocolate with regular dairy milk, I get chocolate milk. The quality of the original is diluted.
I feel I do this to myself when I allow judging thoughts to enter my heart. It dilutes the love that God is trying to work through me. I cannot love completely and unconditionally, if I allow myself to entertain judgmental thoughts.
Lord help me judge less so that I may love more.
Wise words, my friend. I think it's something that we all forget to bear in mind when we are criticizing others. I wonder why it's not in the Commandments - or is it? It might be this one: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor! It's a thought!
Its definitely something I need a reminder of. Hard to show God's love through a judgemental heart.
