Morning Musing Over Coffee - Judgmental?

Nothing so needs reforming as another person's habits. ~ Mark Twain

I am quick to say that I am a very nonjudgmental person. And to most people I am. But I sometimes realize that I have slipped into being critical of those I should be most supportive of, those under my own roof. So I need to take stock, acknowledge where I'm messing up, and then, with God's help, work to be the supportive wife, mother and friend He has called me to be.

“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.
 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Matthew 7:1-5
