Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32) - Daily Bible Reflections June 23,2014


DIG DEEPER
 
“For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” – Matthew 7:2
 
Part of my work as a magazine editor is to correct errors in grammar, spelling and style. In other words, I look for the “wrong” in order to make it “right.” I keep in mind the metaphor, “Don’t judge a book by its cover” and abide by it literally. I need to read every word, sentence and paragraph; check the graphics, photos and other details of the magazine from cover to cover.
       I realized that there are editing principles I should apply — and others I should avoid — in my relationship with people. When I find something wrong in a person, I should not stop there and be quick to judge. I should dig deeper — get to know the person more —and “read” beyond what my senses perceive. I have learned, for example, that an overly critical person is emotionally and spiritually wounded and her criticisms about others may be a projection of her very own faults.
       Unfortunately, it’s easy to judge others by appearance and by reputation. I need to learn to see “difficult” people with the compassionate eyes of Jesus. After all, this is the way He looks at me.Dina Pecaña (dpecana@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32)
 
Lord, grant me the grace to remember that the judgment I pass on others is the same one others will pass on me. May I see others through Your loving eyes.
 
St. John Fisher, pray for us.
