Well, I’m not perfect. We all make mistakes. I’ll try harder next time. I’m just human.
These are just some of the excuses we use to cover our sins. I’ve noticed that when we sin, we tend to minimize the severity and seriousness of our sins. After all, no one wants to be criticized or judged harshly. And to think what we must do to correct the sin or make it right; the consequences are not always appealing. So, we do not judge ourselves too severely.
What about when you see others doing the same sin you just did? How do you judge them? Often you see their sin at least ten times worse than what you did. And does that give you the right to judge them that severely?
The words to the Our Father, forgive us our sins as we forgive others, I try to keep in mind – all the time. You must realize, how you judge people is how you will be judged when you stand before God. Do you want God to judge you the same way you judged others? This is the question that should turn our lives around. Stop the gossip. Do not slander. Do not judge. Seek to forgive. Help each other get to heaven.
May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
