Conquer the Spirit of Judging!
Not long ago, I was meeting with a 19-year-old girl who had recently returned to the Lord after a time of tragic rebellion. I asked her about the counselors who tried to help her before she decided to go her own way.
When I mentioned the name of one of her counselors, she exclaimed, “I had a hard time with her, because whenever she looked at me I sensed a judgmental spirit.” I asked her how she could tell simply from a look whether or not someone was judging her. She said, “The way she looked at me made me feel that she was evaluating my dress and appearance and wanting me to conform to her standards.”
