Luke 6: 37 – 38

Judging Others

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”


Take a moment to let your body, mind and spirit rest. Simply breathe slowly and let yourself relax in God’s presence. Let life’s tensions flow away to give yourself complete peace.

With your heart and mind open, think of people you know, people you have met who are welcoming, accepting. The ones who always have time for others no matter who they are.
The ones who are never too busy to stop and listen. To help someone. To be there. Maybe someone has treated you that way recently. Maybe you met them long ago. Bring them to mind.

These gracious ones have a full measure, a generous helping from God. They are not anxious or grasping. They are content and at peace. They brim over with love. They do not judge or condemn but offer space – God’s space – for the people around them to inhabit.
Open your hands and your heart and model all you do today on the way these ones have treated you.
