Judge Me

It seems like everyone is always railing against being judged in our society but our social media is set up in such a way that proves we all want to be judged, otherwise we wouldn’t be on Facebook and Instagram. The issue isn’t that we don’t want to be judged, it’s that we don’t want to be judged negatively. The interesting thing to me about this is that historically, judgment for Christians is something positive. St. Patrick’s breastplate prayer speaks of the sweet well done of judgment hour made possible through the work of Christ. What wonderful news that we are judged as worthy of being loved because we have been created, pursued, died for by one who loves us so dearly. When the one who is judging you is made up of love unbounded and judgment is not something to fear, it is something to be embraced. May we all be like Christ in our judgments, viewing others from the perspective of love.
