Judgments that heal

“From where I stand, it looks to me as if so-and-so just doesn’t measure up” is a way of making judgments that is all too common among human beings (and we are all in this together, by the way). It’s so easy to judge people on the basis of surface appearances and personal viewpoints. And even though it’s clear to most of us that this is not an accurate or fair way to make judgments, it is an important habit to face and an important habit to break. If we want to be successful Christian healers, it’s a job we have to tackle. 

To be healers, we need to view people through the lens of humility and spiritual understanding—regardless of how they may seem to be judging us.

Other people constantly misjudged Christ Jesus. But he went right on viewing and loving people as God sees and loves them—as God’s own whole and pure spiritual image and likeness—and the receptive ones he saw in this way were spiritually transformed and physically healed.
