Story of the day:  Judging others is the Salmonella of the soul

     In Your Health Al Hinman writes:

     A spotless kitchen may harbor as many bacteria as a less tidy one, says a surprising new finding from the University of Arizona, in Tucson.  That’s because the most germ-laden object in a kitchen is often the sponge.  Researchers tested sponges and dishrags collected from five hundred kitchens across the U.S. and found that as many as one out of five contained salmonella bacteria.  Almost two thirds had at least some other bacteria that, when ingested, could make people ill.

Quote of the day:  Craig Larson

“Some attempts to cleanse can cause more harm than good.  So it is when a hypocritical attitude prevails.  Condemnation, self-righteousness, and judgmentalism are the salmonella of the soul.”

Bible verse of the day:  Matthew 7:2

For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”


Dear Heavenly Father,

It is not my right to judge other people.  Father only You can see into everyone’s heart and know the good and bad that is there.  Father I pray that my heart is sensitive to this and that it recognizes any judging before it begins.  I pray to always see others through Your eyes of Love and be sensitive to others and their needs.  I thank You for this day!

In Jesus Name I pray,
