I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. (NLT)

3As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.

4“Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”

6They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” (NLT)

20And then he added, “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. 21For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.” (NLT)

16There are six things the Lord hates—no, seven things he detests:

17haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent,

18a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong,

19a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family. (NLT)

5In the same way, you younger men must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, serve each other in humility, for “God opposes the proud but favors the humble.”a

6So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. (NLT)

  1. Excellent advice. I try to live to Jesus’ teachings, but not being judgmental is one of the toughest to follow. Thanks for this reminder TM, because I know I could benefit by being less judgmental towards others. Most of the time, I don’t know what people are going through so I should be caring, not critical.

    1. So nice to see you again, Michael …

      Appreciate the feedback on this one. You are correct, it’s a tough one to follow, and unless we’re on top of it, being reminded, or like yourself, self-reminded, it eats us up, leading to the gossiping corner on anything and everything; the latter is a tough one in my health field position…so, so easy to get caught up in it. Self-awareness gets us all the time!

      I have often thought that there should be a stronger emphasis on the teaching of ‘EMPATHY’ in our school systems. Unfortunately, the overall system, especially in USA and Canada where I notice it most, is the gradual mind-controlling and dummying-down aspect, which I believe comes from a slow but sure move into Marxism; that which appears for the benefit of the working class, the people, when in fact, check out any evidences to support its likes (Communism) and see just how beneficial it is. DOWNSIDE is, it’s an easy sell because people do not, nor care not, to do their own research…and as a result…an easy sell that has the majority suckered in, hook, line, and sinker.

      Thanks again, my friend…

      PS: going to be posting another reason to share why TM can never be a judge of another fellowman, from his own track record himself. Thanks … TM
