Daily RICHual #14: Judge Not

The Bible says, “Judge not, lest ye be judged.”

When most people contemplate that Biblical quote, they think of judging others and while that may have been Jesus’ intent, I think there is someone else we ought to be careful about judging: ourselves.

Don’t get me wrong, judging others is a relationship and attitude killer. Judgment is the brother or sister of comparison, envy, bitterness. And I have no room for those.

There are a lot of things I would like to have and do in this life. Most of them have nothing to do with what you have or want to do. And if you’ve had tremendous success, I think that’s great. I just don’t have room for jealousy or the other judgmental things that come with it.

Worse than this “other” judgment, is self judgment.
