  1. Great analogy. I think this is something we all (ok well at least me!) struggle with. Judgement is one of those things that slowly creeps into our hearts without (at first) even realizing it is present or a problem. I love your line “hands free of my pride, I can finally hold Jesus’s hand as I walk humbly with Him, in assurance that He knows I love Him.” I am encouraged to talk hand in hand with Him today. Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Right on target. God has been convicting me of this very thing. I judge and condemn holding my head high only to be reminded that my sin offends our righteous God. Thanks, Stephanie. I am handing over my gun as well.

  3. I wish I could show this article to several people I know. Maybe it would set them straight.
    Thank you for this word for today. Great words to think about.

  4. You must be talking about me also. I’m very judgemental, too quick to judge before learning about the person. My mind, the devil, says…you’re fat, stupid, ugly, lazy ..mostly about other people. I am also very harsh on myself with those same words!!

    Thanks for the reminder!!

    God Bless!!!

  5. Judgement of others begins with pride. There is no living human who does not carry pride’s tarnish. Praying that He will search my heart and show me all the ways pride keeps me from giving and (gulp) receiving grace. I know I have much open heart surgery left.

  6. Stephanie, I *love* this picture of being hands free of pride so I can hold the hand of Jesus. By His grace may I do this better!

  7. We will be judge by how we judge others…..that has come back to bite me more then once. Pride certainly is the root of this since its the sin that so easily besets me. I can be so quick to judge but so slow to repent. I find judging others is rooted in my control issue….if they would just go it my way….how prideful of me.. so very thankful for the new mercies of God that cover a multitude of sins such as being judgmental. Convicting post but a good one to root out this sin in us frail human. I certainly appreciate the reminder….like the analogy of the quick drawn gun of judgement. Awareness brings repentance. Like Kristin by His grace I will do better.. your post makes me want to do better

  8. This is something I am still working on as well but one thing I started over a year ago is to turn my judgement into blessing. If I catch myself starting to judge a person I instead say out loud God Bless You. While I am not a pro at it nor has it absolved me of all the sin that is judgement it truly has helped hold me accountable and it has taught me how much I judge. I hope to continue holding the hand of Jesus.
