#126: Do You Have a Problem Being Judgy?

We’ve all been there. Someone’s eyes are burning a judgmental hole into us with their condemning glare. They watch us… our words, actions or appearance. We are being evaluated with a critical eye.

Being under the eye of judgmentalism is the worst. We hate being under its effects, but we constantly seem to keep giving it out against others.

The moment we see a flaw in someone or hear about a scandalous situation, the first response is to give an opinion, make an assessment and judge.

We know that judgmentalism is defiling. We wouldn’t want to be put under that kind of condemning microscope. So why do we throw others into that same arena?

Those who say, “please stop judging me” are expressing the shame and pain of being evaluated in a way that makes them feel unworthy. Yet if we really don’t want to be judged like that, why don’t we give that grace to others? It seems that thousands of years have not taught the people of God the lessons on how to judge, yet keep away from the destructive nature of judgmentalism.

Are you being a bit too judgy in your life? Most people deny it or shake it off as some little quirk.

Today, we want to own up to our own patterns of judgmentalism and invite you to walk free with us from the nasty clutches of judgmentalism.
