Title: Judging less so that I can love more
Post by: Bryan on June 22, 2019, 12:55:05 pm
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.
