Humility – Refraining from criticizing others.

Humility – Refraining from criticizing others.

Criticism like a rock in my throat.  Like tears behind my eyes.  I am (so far) refraining from giving voice to these thoughts but the thoughts are there and strong.

This morning something made me think of the New Testament admonition that it is not what goes into our body that corrupts it, but what comes out.  Actually I remember, it was a commercial for fish sandwiches at Mc Donald’s.  The hypocrisy (I see) of Lenten fish eaters.

So I will not let the criticism out.  But truly my mind is corrupted and sinning with these critical thoughts that help no one, hurt me, and, I’m sure, hurt others in the cosmos and closer at hand.
