    I've been thinking about the words judgment and hypocrisy.  Although different in meanings, they could be, in my opinion, closely connected.      Merriam-Webster dictionary on hypocrisy, states in part, "behavior that contradicts what one claims to believe or feel". Then on judgment it states in part, "a proposition stating something believed or asserted", a formal utterance of an authoritative opinion, a formal decision given by a court..."       In a Scripture passage from Luke, Chapter 6, verses 41-42 Jesus says:       "Why do you see the speck in your neighbor's eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or, how can you say to your neighbour, 'Friend, let me take out the speck in your eye, ' when you yourself do not see the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbour's eye."  Luke 6:41-42      We know in our hearts that being really angry, hateful, and "pointing fingers" for example, is not what we really want to do. "Passing judgment,", "beating ourselves up” in one way or another regarding guilt for example, and in other ways, is something we know we also really don't want to do.  However, we do it anyway.  It would be good to remember that God is the supreme, ultimate judge of each of our characters.      We sometimes forget, too, that we are spiritual beings walking a human walk.  And these days, what a human walk that is! It is far from easy to walk your true inner spiritual truth, to walk as a child of God, the Creator in this material world. Paths we face as choices along the road could be "skewed" and we could become blinded by the illusion(s) of the world, thinking it could be real and good.  Many distractions in this world could test, strain, make it difficult.      It is true that God did give us free will choice. It is always our choice as to which belief or action we take. However, are we asking and listening in our hearts for true discernment and wisdom?
