Don't Judge Me...

Hey everybody!

Today I got called up on stage at church! It's one of the very reasons I LOOOVE my church, Cross Church Fayetteville: I know and love Nick and feel super comfortable with him - so much so that I'd run up on stage in front of hundreds of people even if I don't know what I'll be doing. Anyway... today's message was a great one, and one that I always find myself guilty of... being judgemental.

Yes, I am guilty of judging others. I see people like hitch-hikers, crazy moms in Wal-Mart, etc., and I judge. I'm being unfair because I don't know how or why they are at such-and-such point in life, and I don't ask. Even so, God tells me it's not my job to judge, and that I'll be judged by my thoughts. Matthew 7:5 illustrates that I need to examine and realize my own sins instead of focusing on what others do. Check yo-self.

You're definitely going to want to check out minute 7 (but the whole thing is good - I'm never wrong about these things)

How many of us needed to hear that message today? I definitely did! Thanks Cross Church (and Nick) for being an instrument and bringing to light those areas in my life where I still struggle.

Talk to you soon,
