MATTHEW 7:2_ye shall be judged…
In whatever form of discipline is considered best, children, and plenty of adults, need correction. Ever heard of a jail called a correctional facility? Wise judgment is discipline with love and acceptance.
“Because you were disciplined does not mean you are a bad person, you are a beautiful person. God loves you. I love you.”
A case of poor judgment is if boundaries are never verbally set, or written, yet they are enforced. The violator is judged guilty without ever having had an opportunity to obey by understanding the rules.
Another case of poor judgment is after someone has apologized, or made right, or been disciplined – the violation is not erased. A situation arises for someone to perform some kind of task – the previous violator is never given a chance: “The last time I trusted you with …”
The one who violated, trespassed, or knocked over the boundaries, is bound to their past. No opportunity is given for renewed trust and worth. Judgment has been passed before an opportunity to show trustworthiness is given. This is not the kind of judgment you want to return to you.
Give everyone the kind of trust you want given you.
God Who Hears, It is so easy to judge. Your wisdom and grace will change me. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ does not want poor judgment—He will help me!

“Give everyone the trust you would like to receive”….It reminds me of what I read recently in Courage to be Disliked, that we can choose to trust people or doubt people – but it is so much more beneficial for cultivating friendships that we extend trust.
AMEN! I believe genuine love always gives the benefit of the doubt. Thank you!!
