You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.
I don’t ever feel like I am better than anyone else, but I know sometimes I don’t understand others ways and my first thought is not always in their favor. USUALLY I reprimand myself for that thought, but I would rather it not be there to begin with. None of us is perfect, none of us is without fault. I pray that I am humble enough to live this way AND think this way.
Each day I teach my children that every decision has a consequence, that they are responsible for the decisions they make, that they are actually the ones that choose to be punished because of their actions.
I find it ironic (and sad) that each day our world is teaching them the opposite. The adults of this world (not all, but more than a few) are setting the example of “do what feels good and others will clean up your mess.”
It is not easy to be a parent in today’s world. Good thing I like a challenge. 🙂 Good thing God wins in the end. 🙂
