Don’t Judge Others
- Monday, January 21, 2013
Backseat drivers, Monday morning quarterbacks and critical people all slip into the niggling habit of criticizing others. It’s easy to do. We look at our others and wonder why they do what they do. After all, we’d never do it that way. This habit becomes even more destructive when it invades our home and our marriage. Far from being an innocuous trait, this habit is like a cancer that tears at the very fabric of your marriage. Seek to eliminate judgments from your marriage and replace them with encouragements. “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Matthew 7: 2)
