And on a More Serious Note

I want to start out by saying how much of a blessing it is to have finally found a place online where there are so many Christian women. I believe that what we surround ourselves with *does* matter. A lot. Even in online situations. Maybe even *especially* in online situations. :)

And so many of the women that I read are so inspiring. They exude so many qualities that I admire and want to emulate. They give me the added punch to take on my day with a different attitude. And I admire them.

And still there are so many Christian women online that appear to be extremely judgmental. This is something that I just can't rationalize. I know that we are to take a stand. But we are NOT to judge.

Again, I tend to find this more in the younger women as a general rule. And I'm not sure what this says about the collective "us" here.

Think about the recent Halloween blogs that have been written.

Judge not.

Simple really.

Mat. 7:1
Judge not, that ye be not judged.

Mat. 7:2
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

It's certainly something that I strive to apply in my own life.

Great post! It's all to easy to feel like you have all the answers to everyone's problems. But the truth is, we don't really know what that person is like. We only know what they type into a computer. I like to think that judgemental person is typing their "how to have a perfectly clean house" advice whilst sitting on a pile of dirty laundry as the sink overflows! Ya just never know.

Of course, MY house is not like that! Not today, anyway...

Good to meet you! I found you on the Family Friendly Blogroll; I've only been blogging 3 months now myself, so I'm still trying to make the rounds. You're right, there are lots of great Christian women online; I've met many new friends here. Have a blessed weekend, and drop by my blog whenever you're in the neighborhood!
