St. Paul said, “You, O man, are without excuse, every one of you who passes judgment.
For by the standard by which you judge another you condemn yourself, since you, the judge, do the very same things.” Rom 2:1-11
Today’s readings all contain the theme of Judgment. And within that theme, they all tell us that WE are not the ones to be judging others. That, is in the hands of God. But as we judge, so will we BE judged. Funny, as we so often tend to look at others, we always seem to find this to be the case. The very thing they complain about is the very thing they do or become themselves, in no time at all. And if that’s true, then we don’t even have to look at others, beloved. All we need do is look at ourselves. And when we discover that TRUTH in ourselves, then it hits our very hearts – Don’t Judge!
The more we can let go of the judging, the happier we become.
The Psalmist said, “Only in God is my soul at rest; from him comes my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold;
I shall not be disturbed at all.” Psalm 62
And the simple solution:
FOCUS ON GOD, ALWAYS,
and all the rest will fall in it’s proper place.
God love you,
