“A monk of our day said: “One commandment could cure the ills of those who cause turmoil in the Church today: ‘judge no one.’ This should be the motto of those who hold firm to Orthodox tradition.”
Wham! Pow! Right upside the head. Thank you. Yes, if we could just cease to judge each other, what a peaceful pleasant world this would be.
It is certainly something I’ve been seeking to do. One thing I’ve learned is that my motivation to judge someone is usually triggered by my feelings about what someone else has said or done and I don’t like the way I feel, so it is easier to blame the other guy with judgmental language or thoughts.
