How many times have we experienced a judgment from our
neighbors? It is not strange that we do; this situation is just
normal. It may be personal, in our workplace, in the church
or in our families.

It could be a simple prejudice or a petty remark or a smirk
or a taunt. It could involve a deeper pain or a feeling of anger
or sometimes resentment. On the other hand, it is not only
the responsibility of the perpetrator but it also merit a
responsibility on our part.

"Do not judge and be not judged." A passage in Scripture
rings a bell, "Why do you see the dirt in your brother's eye
when you have a block on your own eye?" It is easy to
pass judgment on others and then we wonder why when
others judge us, too.

Love is the main ingredient to help us not to make hasty
judgments about others. Love is the very opposite of hatred.
In this season of Lent, let us reflect on ourselves if we did
some fasting on judging others. As the the words of St.
Paul, "All fall short of the glory of God" in the Letter to the
Romans. Is there a need of judging then, when we are all
in the same footing before the majesty of God?
