Jesus gave me for dealing with my critical-judgmental spirit, competitive/superiority addiction, is asking Him to show me ways I’m just like the person I’m looking down upon, maybe not on the surface, but deep down — how what drives them, drives me too. OUCH. Out of the answered prayer comes a compassion for the person I never had before. Amazing.
And yet-another helpful strategy, is my THANKing Jesus for creating those I criticize/judge just the way He did, so I’m looking at them as His creations rather than other humans who have weaknesses for my feasting pleasure.
