#shorts Part 1 — When Judging Backfires
What bothers us the most about others are the negative traits we have ourselves
(1) So every single one of you who judge others is without any excuse. You condemn yourself when you judge another person because the one who is judging is doing the same things.
Romans 2:1 (CEB)
Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Time for another post.
Very recently on this blog, I was on vacation. And I was writing shorter posts. Now I will once again be writing shorter posts, much shorter posts, for about a month. I’m not on vacation, but I am currently unable to devote the same amount of time to this blog as I usually am. And this will continue for about a month.
I write these blog posts about a month in advance. at the time of this writing, I have returned from that vacation I was talking about. But I have a project going on that can’t wait, will only last until the end of August, and I only have a chance to do it during this time. There’s a group of missionaries in town and they’re building a mission camp in my area. Every day I go help them get the place ready. And I can only do this during my usual writing time.
So I have to make choices, and something has to get sacrificed because I don’t have enough time in the day. And until the end of August, what gets sacrificed will be my blog.
In place of my normal posts, I’ll be writing #shorts, something I see other bloggers doing a lot. So I’m going to try my hand at it too. For the next month at least, what you can expect from my blog will be short little tidbits, a brief message or a quote or a Scripture passage. I hope you will find something valuable in them.
So let’s get to today’s tidbit.
You Condemn Yourself
Have you ever heard that whatever bothers or annoys us in another person is something that God is trying to tell us about ourselves?? In other words, the flaws and shortcomings of another person (things which everyone suffers from) bother us so much because we are guilty of the same thing.
