“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.” Jesus (Matt 7:1-2)
One of the main reasons I write is to get things off my chest (insert snarky comment).
I was washing dishes a minute ago and my view from the window is a top down look into my neighbor’s backyard and pool. That’s when I saw “the guy.”
Because I thought, if the guy is there, that means the girl is somewhere nearby. It looked like he was alone and for that I breathed a sigh of relief. All of a sudden – whoopsie daisy – there she was, bending over to pick something up in front of him – and in front of me. In her red bikini, the bottoms of which happen to be a thong.
It’s 60 degrees outside.
I’m in a sweatshirt and pants, but I think . . . well it is sunny over there. Maybe she’s hot. Oh she’s hot alright. She’s also blond and sports an enormous set of boobs.
And again, I breathed a sigh of relief because my husband’s not around and so far she’s managed to keep her top on. I say so far because that isn’t always the case. Both my hubby and my assistant have gotten a glimpse of her abundant gifts. For some reason the pair now watch my neighbor’s dog on Tuesday mornings.
I admit, my mind races with all sorts of scenarios, seeing as how he’s never needed this before. As the thoughts swirl around my brain the tone with which I process them gets snarkier and my imagination darker.
Then the Holy Spirit rescues me and I step back from the window and let them do their thing, which appears to be heating up by the minute. Do not judge Erika. Also, do not yell any unkind words at them from your window.
They obviously don’t know (or care) they’re being watched from above, but I’m aware God’s watching me. He’s got a keen eye on my behavior. Will I take his command not to judge into my heart?
Yes. Because I don’t want that measure poured back onto my head. Judgment belongs to Him alone.
So I pray for them and am thankful my son’s eyes are focused on his violent video games.
Your Turn: It’s almost Thanksgiving, so what are you thankful for today?
