    POSITIVE BUTTERFLIES FOR A POSITIVE LIFE



JUDGMENTAL THOUGHTS ARE THE DANGER ZONE

Judgmental thoughts are the danger zone.

Jesus had many things to say about judgmental thinking, and none of them were good.  He taught that God is the only one qualified to judge how other people live, and if you are smart, you will mind your own business and keep your judgmental thoughts to yourself.  Even better, you will leave the business of judgment up to God, and change the focus of your life to love.

Jesus made it clear that none of us are qualified to act as judge or jury on the compromises and choices that other people make.  Although we may not like what they do, only God is qualified to look inside that person's heart and be their judge.

Jesus warned that the way we judge other people becomes the standard by which we are judged.  If we adopt a harsh and critical way of assessing the behavior of others, the boomerang of judgment will soon come back and hit us right between the eyes.  When judgmental words leave your lips, it's not long before they return, and you must taste their bitter flavor as your own choices and compromises come back to haunt you.

Two thousand years ago, religious authorities brought a woman to Jesus and told him she was caught in the act of committing adultery.  In those times, the punishment for adultery was death by stoning.  The authorities asked Jesus what they should do.  Should they put her to death as required by the law?

Jesus said, "He that is without sin, let him cast the first stone."

Jesus wasn't condoning immorality or giving this woman a license to continue in an immoral lifestyle.  The real point of the story is that no one is qualified to cast a stone in self-righteousness at another individual.

God is the judge of how we live.  He is fully qualified and able to judge in a fair manner without our help.  We don't need to become religious police, judge, or jury.  We need to love other people who have problems and leave the judgment up to God.

Jesus went even further in his attack on self-righteousness.  He said the judgment we pass on to others becomes the standard by which we are judged.  People who slip into the trap of self-righteousness set a very high bar over which they will have to jump.

Your chance of being perfect is zero, and if you are smart, you won't criticize other people who aren't perfect.  Whatever shortcomings other people have, you would be wise to send them your live and leave the judgment up to God.

The day you become perfect will be the day you have the right to become the arm of God and cast the first stone.
