Do Not Judge
GOD WANTS TO EMPTY YOUR HEART OF JUDGMENT.
At every turn Jesus’ teachings provide practical ways to grow spiritually. Just focusing on reducing the amount of judgment in your life is a path to peace, joy, and incredible spiritual growth. You will immediately experience the internal fruit of this path through a new peace that will flood your soul. But you will also quickly discover the external impact reducing judgment has on relationships.
Nobody likes being around someone who is constantly judging them. Our relationships cannot survive under the unbearable weight of constant judgment. When we stop pumping the poison of judgment into the greenhouses of our relationships, we all begin to thrive in a new way together.

How will your key relationships improve if they are free from judgment?
Count how many times you judge yourself today. Count how many times you judge others. Ask God to liberate you from making judgments.
Jesus, make me aware just before I am about to fall into judging someone, and give me the grace to stop myself.
