Judgment

One of the hardest realities to come to terms with when you dedicate your life to truth is that anger, jealousy, and resentment never change the hearts of others, they only change yours. The accommodation of these spirits, however rationalized, is always destructive.

This reality points to the reason why judgment is so devastating to those who judge; judgment is fundamentally self-destructive. Truth has been elusive to man because he feels his own judgment supersedes the working of truth.

One thought on “Judgment

  • The phrase “sit in judgement,” comes to mind defined as assuming the right to judge someone especially in a critical manner. In looking up the word judgement also it is first defined as the ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions. I find it interesting to consider your words in the light of these definitions along with my recent psalm meditation which has been, “the judgements of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.” With all of this I am seeing as we honor that which is true we can perceive our worlds with wisdom and allow that which is true to be discerned without it being superseded by worldly patterns of human judgement.
