Finding God's Goodness

Week 52. Seeing. Without Judgment.

Valuing others is justice. The virtue of love grows our generosity.

Jesus complains when the crowds use worldly standards to size him up. They are caught up in their opinions and all too easily pass judgment on Him. They accuse Jesus of being possessed by a demon, a drunkard, and so on.

How easy is it for me to judge others by accepting or rejecting them for mere external things? What are my internal attitudes towards others? How well do I carry a generous heart of justice? 

He who carries God in his heart bears heaven with him wherever he goes.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

Lord, help me to be detached from all worldly standards of judging and to embrace each soul, loving them as You do, and to leave the judging to You.
