This is how the Word of Christ can dwell in me richly.
I need to stop judging and condemning, St. Luke tells me. He means, “Stop determining a person’s fate,” and “stop pronouncing sentence” against a fellow Christian.
Instead, “Let go of the debt.” St. Benedict says that I should not let the sun go down on my anger. If I refuse, then that same measure of judgment and condemnation will be measured out to me.
I don’t know about you…but that scares me.
