Judging People

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged (Matthew 7:1). 

We do it anyway, don't we? Pass critical commentary, give our opinion when we don't know the full story, act as though we walked in another's shoes when they don't even fit. We're too much, aren't we? Yet, we think we know what's up, when we haven't a clue. We think we can render a half-cocked decision and ruling about something without being appointed the judge. Heck, we don't even sit on the jury. 

Moreover, when somebody is smiling, laughing, functioning, and living through the pain, we think they have no room or no right to do so. Did we go through what they went through? No, so we shouldn't speak or act on it. Tell me, if you will, exactly how should somebody act after they've suffered from their mistakes, for public sins, or a traumatizing event? Should they curl up and wither away? Or should they live life to the fullest in order to help people live their lives to the fullest? Should they help people half way? Because that's what they'll do if they're living a life of sorrow, pain, and regret. We can't help anybody being broken and torn up. 

So, let's do each other a favor and stop judging what we know nothing about. A lot more good can be done when we do that. Would you agree?

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and
