Judgment vs. wisdom

In this world we’ll walk into struggles, conflicts and disagreements with others. I’ve been reflecting on judgment versus discernment. They are not the same thing. Judgment sits in accusation. It condemns or sentences. Discernment is wisdom we use to make choices. There have been a lot of people screaming for “tolerance” in social issues and for Christians, especially, to “back off” or not to judge or pressure them.

I was feeling artistic last night and put this collage together. This verse holds such power. It’s what helped me escape unhealthy relationships and use discernment in my dealings with others.

When people start shouting to stop judging, it’s usually more about what’s happening inside of them. Although, we are going to meet pushy people in many places. Use discernment. Ask for wisdom.
