Judgement

"It is required in stewards that one be found faithful."
"But for me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by human court.In fact I do not even judge myself."
"Judge nothing before time,until the Lord comes,who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the heart then each one praise will come from God."Corinthians 4:1-5

We live in a world that is very judgemental of all things. And being in the connected world can bring this news to our lives by just a click of a button or mouse,in a second.
How many times have you heard a story on TV. computer or radio,and prejudged a situation by simply listening to the media source?
My husband and I tend to lean on the conservative side of life and as such we listen to things like fox news because we are in agreement with most of their stands on the subjects they present.
We have friends who lean more toward the liberal side and feel CNN is their new source.Now it is interesting how I may have heard one side of a story and my friends another and when we get together to discuss what we each know it is not even close to the real story that lies some where in the middle.
Judgement is like that when we hear something we assume what we hear is the whole truth because we feel the source is well informed,but in reality it is one sided.
Usually what we hear is the side we prefer to hear,since it fits into our train of thought and experience,so the judgements we make seem rational.
Today we have people in news stories like sports figures,politicians,actors and musicians,that we regularly crucify with out understanding... "the rest of the story."...(has Paul Harvey used to say.)(I know old guy move on)
We forget that the life we ruin by judgement is not our life but someone distant and removed.
And besides their rich,they deserved it. right?
The above bible verse tells us that to judge others is wrong because we do not understand what God knows and as a matter of fact we do not even understand ourselves well enough to judge us.
You know It's hard to bring the light of judgement to others when we our selves are sitting in darkness.
