4 REASONS TO STOP JUDGING OTHERS                        
By Dr. James A. Perkins
 
All of us experience the tendency to judge others. We proceed to be negative, critical, fault-finding, and disapproving about those around us. What many don’t take into account is that judging others speaks volumes about who we are. 
So let’s Learn the following 4 Reasons to Stop Judging Others:
 
1. S. – See Your Real Self Every Time You Judge Another. The truth is that all of us excel in microscopically focusing on another’s mistake, while giving ourselves a pass even about our major failures. So here’s a thought: The greater your judgmental attitude toward others, the greater your own personal guilt in your own life. When you judge another you actually see yourself as superior than them, and give yourself a pass about personal shortcomings. 
 
2. T. –Transform Your Thoughts and Tame Your Tongue. Do you know that we judge another in our thoughts, before we talk about them with our tongue? And to stop judging others requires us to have our own thinking transformed. We should know that as we think, so we are. To control stinkin’ talk, we must stop stinkin’ thinking. So learn that the root of better thoughts brings forth fruit that tames the tongue.
 
3. O. – Open Your Heart and Obey Your God. Transforming our thinking actually begins in opening our heart before the Lord. Judging others is primarily a heart issue, and the solution comes by the softening of our hearts in the presence of God. The more we draw close to Him, the more we see our faults and are humbled. A humble heart brings obedience to Christ who says, “Don’t judge so that you will not be judged” (Matthew 7:1).
 
4. P. – Pray and Praise the Lord For People. When the heart changes, our thoughts are transformed and the tongue is tamed. As we shift inside, this softens our attitudes and motivates us to pray for others more. We even begin to praise the Lord for them rather than judge. We are “kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other just as God in Christ also has forgiven us” (Ephesians 4:32)
