Measure Less


The Lesson

Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 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: 1-2

Drill 1

Every day this week, do not judge anyone at all. Don't make assumptions, don't entertain thoughts that make the person less than what they may be. 

Drill 2

Pray this prayer with me everyday; 
"O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life." - St. Francis

Drill 3

Find one person you find yourself judging frequently and do the following; make a list of how you are like them. 

Drill 4

How can you get a better understanding of the person? List ways you can connect with the person you are judging and connect with them this week.
