Chipping Away a Judgmental Attitude

It has been said that in order to create a great sculpture, you simply chip away what doesn’t look like what you are trying to create. I believe that becoming a Christian is the same. You must chip away all that doesn’t look like Jesus.

In future weeks we will be working on the chipping.

Chip # 1: a judgmental attitude
Isn’t it easy to see the faults of others? I find that I can always spot a “sin” in someone else and instantly pass judgment as to their motivation often without knowing what is in that person’s heart and more importantly, not considering what is in God’s heart.

The Bible, God’s instruction book for living, makes His will clear.

Now that I know that being judgmental is wrong, how do I get rid of the habit?
I remind myself that none of us will see Heaven without grace.

I remember that I have not earned God’s approval. His mercy and grace are given to each of us equally when we trust in Him.

And finally, the most effective way to get rid of the trash of a judgmental attitude is to love.

Jesus commanded it.

The more you learn about God, the more you will want to get rid of chips. Be assured that He will help you chip away and find the Christian inside. His solutions are in the Bible.
