As sad as it is, the older I get and the more experiences I have the more I realize just how unforgiving are those who are called to be filled with grace.
In Matthew 7 we are commanded to withhold judgement, for who am I to judge others when I have so much sin in my own life.
It is particularly hard to swallow when the judgement being passed is for past sins long forgiven but still with consequences.
How does one make those who stand in judgement of what they do not know and do not understand step back and look at the big picture and the whole story? Particularly when those passing judgement have no life experiences to draw from.
There is a part of me that wants to just throw my hands up and say forget it, but another part of me that won’t give that satisfaction to those who stand in judgement.
