“Throwing shade” or reflecting light?

From the May 4, 2020 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


In our daily contacts with people, we may make judgments of them. But what if instead we are loving enough to see through human labels and imperfections and prayerfully stand up for others’ true, spiritual, God-given goodness? In other words, will we be someone who “throws shade” or someone who takes to heart the fact that we reflect the light of divine Love? “Throwing shade” is a colloquial term describing a negative attitude that criticizes others.
