Do you look at another to be the judge of where they might stand in the eyes of God? I sometimes can judge others without even realizing it. I click a share button, or comment on a post to voice my opinion. Most times I try to give a positive post to change the atmosphere, but am attacked with rebuttals, which I don’t answer. We are a sinful and judgmental society. Some are always looking for something to use to condemn another’s life. We come by it naturally, because of Adam and Eve. They placed sinfulness in our lives that hasn’t stopped.
Jesus changed that. He came to help us through our sinful moments. I have to admit I have used words like crazy and nuts pertaining to some of our women leaders in the government. I could have said she needs help. I have to watch my words in the future, but still get my point across. Sometimes it’s so hard because my emotions get in the way. God is our way out of this sinfulness. When we reach for the share button and hesitate, don’t share. Realize that God is giving you guidance. You can ignore Him and be the chaff in the wind, if you feel compelled. If want to comment and can’t find uplifting words, don’t use any. We need to try the rest of Lent to change our language, ourselves, and others. Let’s see if we can make a change. You might be only one person, but it will spread.
Lord help us to change our words to help others change their words. Nudge us to do the right thing in this electronic age. Help us to lift others up instead of tearing them down. Amen
