The August Ah-Man Newsletter focuses on Feelings and Being Judgmental, and I’m
continuing the discussion in my blog posts this month. You can catch up with
the newsletter discussion HERE.
often hear it said that we shouldn’t judge others…or that judging others is not
right…or who are you to judge others?
all know, life is a balance and judging others is an important part of life. It
can be used as another tool to help us stay on our spiritual path and it is
used to help each and every one of us in our everyday life.
judgmental is also a very important part of parenthood. Parents have to make
judgment calls for the protection of their children and families. Parents are
also setting examples of acceptable and non-acceptable behavior by doing so.
Because a lot of parents are falling prey to this idea that we shouldn’t be
judgmental, they are not setting the example of acceptable and non-acceptable
behavior, which is part of the reason for the violence we see in today’s
(Incarnations of God and Saints) tell us to not be judgmental and to be more
compassionate. This is very confusing to those who do not have a grounded
spiritual advisor; someone who can guide one through the interpretations of the
scriptures. All the scriptures have a much deeper meaning then the words that
are used. Many of the Ones who spoke the scriptures were talking in parables, which
were simply used for examples in that time or in that situation and the words
said: go much deeper.
famous Christian quote from the Scriptures, Matthew 7:1-5, when Jesus, The
Christ is preaching on the Mount of Olives and talks about not judging by using
the parable of the speck of dust in your brother’s eye and the plank in your
quote from Matthew is unfortunately used over and over by others as an argument
why we should not judge or act when wrong is done. If we are not following the
Laws of God, society and Nature, who are we to condemn others is one of the
many interpretations of this passage.
someone is about to break the law, I do hope that you will be judgmental and say
something. There are society’s laws, laws made by nature and spiritual laws of
the scriptures, and when those are broken there are consequences. Does that mean that society, nature or God is
being judgmental when there is a reaction or consequence from that action?
judgmental is important for you, your children, family and society. Being
judgmental also can be wrong if you are not leading by example.
