Snap Judgment

Nothing keeps me earthbound

Like judgment.

Years ago,

Those judgments were

Swift and harsh.


I’ve grown and changed.


The tendency is still there.

When I learned

Someone I know

Is having a tattoo of Jesus

Transformed into a skull,

I thought,

“How could he?”

After some thought,

I realized

I do it all the time.

I act as if the Truth

Is long dead.


I forget who Jesus is.


I don’t share what I know

About Him.


I ignore His direction.


I make excuses

As to why

I don’t walk in obedience.

Passing judgment

Can get me in

A lot of trouble.


If I turn that judgment around

And see how it applies to me,

I will fly

Ever higher.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you (Luke 6:37-38, NIV).
