Has there ever been a more widespread sin than that of rash judgment? Who among us can claim to be free from fault in this arena? Has there been a single day in our lives where we did not in some way criticize our neighbor’s doings?
Thomas à Kempis: “Turn thy eyes back upon thyself and see thou judge not the doings of others. In judging others a man labors in vain, often errs, and easily sins; but in judging and looking into himself he always labors with fruit.”
