the ups and downs of life


We all make some sort of judgment about someone every day. We’re human; it’s going to happen. But we can try our best to stop it. When  we notice that ugliness inside of us starting to criticize or pick apart someone else, shut those thoughts down! You can choose to think about something else. Or if you can’t get whatever or whoever out of your mind, maybe say, “Who knows what they’ve gone through to get to this point?” Because honestly, do you  know what led them to that point?

None of us are perfect. And yes, we have all screwed up at some point or another. Aren’t you glad that you were able to get up and keep going? What if people kept pushing you down and tearing you apart? Some people do get treated that way. So how about not treating someone that way?

Maybe we should try to think a little more like Jesus. Matthew 7:1-5: “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and [a]by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how [b]can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye?You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

Yes, we have to have discernment in life, but that doesn’t mean we should go around pointing out other people’s flaws. Get your own life perfect and maybe just maybe you have room to judge. But probably not. And discernment and judgment are completely different. Discernment is recognizing something and making a decision about whether it is good for you to do or not to do. Judgment is you actively judging another person’s actions in life. You need to realize that is God’s job. Let God do His job. He knows what He’s doing…I promise.
