I hope you are well and had a great holiday if you are from the U.S.
I want to talk to you about casting ungodly judgement on others and the effects it has on you. Read the following passage of scriptures and lets talk below. 🙂
John 8: 1-10 (KJV)
1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
This story really is full of life lessons that we can apply in our everyday life. In life it’s easy to get caught up in looking at the next man in their woes that we easily forget ours. Really it’s a form of displacement, it takes the “feeling” of the burden off of us. I emphasized feeling because that’s all it does, it doesn’t remove our issues it just causes us not to feel the burden of them. Some people call out others faults and sins as a mean of empowering themselves. For whatever reason you put focus on other folks, the more you do it, the more you bury your issues. The problem with that is when you finally decided to focus on yourself you’ll be so far from your own issues it almost will take a third party to help diagnose yourself. When severe, displacement can cause mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or multiple personalities disorder.
If you are a part of the rock throwing club please realize that you’re hurting no one BUT yourself. It’s time to take on the arduous task of focusing on YOU!
