MARCH 5, 2012

Dn 9:4b-10 / Lk 6:36-38

DANIEL 9:4B-10
I prayed to Yahweh, my God, and made this confession: "Lord God,
great and to be feared, you keep your Covenant and love for those who
love you and observe your commandments. We have sinned, we have not
been just, we have been rebels, and have turned away from your
commandments and laws. We have not listened to your servants, the
prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, leaders, fathers and to
all the people of the land. Lord, justice is yours, but ours is a face
full of shame, as it is to this day— we, the people of Judah, the
inhabitants of Jerusalem, the whole of Israel, near and far away, in
all the lands where you have dispersed us because of the infidelity we
have committed against you. Ours is the shame, O Lord for we, our
kings, princes, fathers, have sinned against you. We hope for pardon
and mercy from the Lord, because we have rebelled against him. We have
not listened to the voice of Yahweh, our God, or followed the laws
which he has given us through his servants, the prophets.

LUKE 6:36-38
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Don't be a judge of
others and you will not be judged; do not condemn and you will not be
condemned; forgive and you will be forgiven; give and it will be given
to you, and you will receive in your sack good measure, pressed down,
full and running over. For the measure you give will be the measure
you receive back."

How many times have we been guilty of rash judgment about someone,
condemning him without second thoughts? We criticize people we read
about in the newspapers and magazines. We inwardly judge even our
neighbors after hearing some juicy gossip about them. It is like
judging without a fair trial.

It is easy to find something wrong in everyone else but not in
ourselves. Even if we do make the right judgment about others from
time to time, it does nothing good to us except to reveal who we are.
The things we say, and the way we say them, expose and unveil the
uncharitable attitudes of our heart.

This is why Jesus warned his disciples, and all of us today, not to
judge or condemn others. His exhortation, however, does not mean
abandoning every process of discernment. Rather, if we do judge we
should see to it that the measure by which we gauge others is the same
measure we would use on ourselves. In this way, we practice
discernment and we do not make rash judgments. We impart the attitudes
of love and honesty toward others, and give them the benefit of the
doubt. We do not judge them with their sin while being blind to our
own. After all, justice and fairness are the measure by which we shall
all be judged in the end.
