Judgmental? Uncaring?

August 12, 2013

“When left to my own devices, I am judgmental and uncaring. He [a friend] allowed me to discover a glimpse of Christ’s heart in the way he treated me. I hope I was able to do the same for him.”[1]

I find this quote quite interesting. If we are being honest, anyone of us could say this about ourselves. I can look back and see myself being judgmental and uncaring. I am sure I will repeat these offenses in the future. But here is the key: acknowledge you have this flaw and work on repairing it, address it daily and be aware it can, and probably will, raise its ugly head again. Are you willing to be honest with yourself in this area?

Where can you start? Start with James 2:1-13. Spend the week reflecting on this quote and passage with the goal to work on this flaw.
