today i bless those i am tempted to judge
In denying love to anyone, I deny myself a miracle. In withholding forgiveness from anyone, I withhold it from myself.
Today I think of someone I am tempted to judge, to blame, to criticize, and I remember he or she is a child of God. If any of us are beloved by God, then all of us are beloved by God. May I see all beings through the eyes of God, that I might know their innocence and mine.
Whom I am tempted to judge,
You do not judge.
May I see them as You do,
That I might judge no more.
May I see beyond the veil of guilt,
Focusing no more on the mistakes of others.
May I see instead the light of innocence
That is the truth of who they are.
