How easy has the modern culture made it to not listen to our Blessed Lord? Social media is the new public square, discrimination is running wild, politics have never been more polarized! This is not what Jesus asks of us and yet we all fall victim to Satan.
I'm not alone when I say I have judged, even without opening my mouth. We look at hair color, shirts, significant others, religious affiliation and assume so much about the person. We are afraid to lose our reputation amongst our peers that we have chosen or not chosen to be associated with.
Jesus tells us how we measure others is how we will be measured. Our thoughts and actions directly correlate how people treat us. So before we jump to send that tweet or to right off someone political association based on hair color or judging the boy your daughter brings home based off the music on his iPod, maybe we should measure ourselves, revisit the words of Jesus, and refrain from over measuring.
