Based on my study yesterday, I wanted to investigate President Monson’s talk given the other night to the General Relief Society of the Church.
His talk about about not judging.
Despite our own imperfections, we make judgments of others.
I think this talk is great for what I may go through today. I talked with Lorin on Friday and was told that there may be some big changes today at work in pay for the DLs and also letting the coaches know that Ethan’s promise to bring back the 8% loss in pay was not really for THEM…
I need to “judge righteous judgment” and look at myself before I judge Dane.
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them…”
“This is my commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you.”
Can we love one another if we are spending all our time judging one another? No.
Except ye have charity, ye can in nowise be saved.
Charity is the opposite of judging. Charity manifests itself when we are tolerant of others.
Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down. It is resisting getting angry easily. It is resisting the impulse to categorize others.
All of us wear the mantle of charity. Life is perfect for none of us. May we recognize that each of us is doing our best. Charity is the highest, noblest, strongest kind of love – the pure love of Christ. Whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with them.
May charity permeate our very souls.
I think many of the points he talked about are exactly what Becky and her counselor are going through right now.
Things I’m Grateful For:
- To be wanting to understand this concept of judging
- To be able to talk with Becky about it and try to see different sides
- Being able to play with the kids while Becky was at aerobics
- Having a job that allows me to work on my own businesses while on the job
