Lent - Friday, February 19
Posted on February 19, 2016 by Sister Carol Perry

Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. - Matthew 7:1

Can you hear Him saying this? I can, and more than once since it is such a universal failing. We always know what is wrong in our neighbor’s actions; what choices she should have made and didn’t, and we even can concoct the reasons why. All our neighbor’s flaws are clear, but that is not what is attracting the notice of Jesus. He wants us to stop, now.

Our prayer has to carry over to action this day, to work on rooting out those judgmental mental decrees that poison relations between people.
