The worst aspect of being an evaluator
of others, in real life, online, TV, books, movies, is that we're brutal evaluators of ourselves. You spot it, you got it. Christian evaluators are unhappy people. When Christians are enjoyers instead of judges, we are momentarily happy people. Evaluating/judging/critiquing requires human-wisdom, and human-wisdom is the enemy of happiness. The nicest, kindest thing Jesus' Spirit ever does for us Christians, is to freshly convict us of our human-wisdom-dependency so we can CONFESS. Ahhh. And be momentarily more humble and loving. More compelling to the seculars around us.
-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, thankful that grace is for evaluators, made freshly aware by the Spirit, of their neediness
