....takes place when we think that "they" don't do things/believe things the right way.  They seem to be clueless, we've decided.  We all know...well anybody would know...that the way we do things is right and that they seem to lack the good judgment (which we ourselves have) to pull off  the task at hand.

One of our most common mistakes is that we believe that we know and do better than others.  But hear Paul's words; Therefore you are without excuse, every man of you who passes judgment, for in that you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things...Romans 2:1.

Ooooh.  When we condemn another for their lack we just pointed our puny little fingers at ourselves.  That doesn't sit well, huh?  Concluding that another is weak or lacks is not the warning for such surely might be the case.  To label another as a failure without assuming we, too, possess great lack equal to theirs in some area is the error.

May we care about the works of others, and leave our criticisms out if possible, because every time we condemn another...God insists we just confessed another one of our own errors.
