Heavenly Lord,
‘Judge not, lest ye be judged.’
It sounds so easy that I nod along.
‘Yes, I can do this.  I will do this.’

Yet time and time again,
I catch myself judging and condemning –
the incompetent mother,
the oblivious father,
the inadequate checker.

Almost without thought,
I find these people wanting
in oh so many ways.

But when I am honest,
I also find myself falling short
of the goal you have assigned to us all.

Trust in You.
Do not assume that I know –
Your will,
their situation,
many details of my own reality.

Please help me see the people around me
as You see us all, as Your children,
flawed, failing, and forgiven.


Have a Mary Little Christmas
