Before you start criticizing, judging, saying "If I were them..", and condoning others' choices, think for a moment how little, if anything, you know about that person, or what they went through, and what brought them to be in that stage of life. Chance are, if you knew, you'd be helping them up, instead of kicking then down with your unsolicited ''self-righteousness"..
This short devotion and Bible study packs a powerful punch. Instead of honoring parents, many adult children are criticizing, judging, and neglecting their parents. We need to understand that when we honor our parents, we honor God. This verse in Matthew helps us sort through one of the things that stands in our way of seeing our parents biblically.
Nobody is perfect and nobody deserves to be perfect. Nobody has it easy, everybody has issues. You never know what people are going through. So pause before you start judging, criticizing or mocking others. Everybody is fighting their own unique war. #judging #quotes
