We tend to judge others by their behavior and ourselves by our intentions. Think of how amazing our relationships and our lives would be if we were able to remove the judgment and have more love. I mean really?! Wow, what a difference it would make! We make observations and think we know whats going on in other peoples lives, what they should do, shouldn’t have done, but truly we have no idea what is going on in a persons life or what they have gone through in their past. Their path is just that, THEIR path of learning and its not going to look like yours.
This quote is perfect and beautiful, if I may suggest, read the quote and replace the word “sin” with” judgement”
“Jesus saw sin as wrong but also was able to see sin as springing from deep and unmet needs on the part of the sinner. This permitted him to condemn the sin without condemning the individual. We can show forth our love for others even when we are called upon to correct them. We need to be able to look deeply enough into the lives of others to see the basic causes for their failures and shortcomings.” President Spencer W. Kimball – Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
Ask for more love and it will come. Your heart will be softened 🙂
