What??? Enter shock and astonishment.
Obviously, this ex-24 week preemie is living and growing, so who are we to judge if a life is viable? I was upset and as I pondered on it that night, I realized something.
We all do it, maybe not out loud but in our hearts and minds. We do it when we judge others by our own prejudices and self-righteousness. We do it when we speak evil by gossiping. We do it when we refuse to forgive. We also do it when we neglect to share Christ. Yet Christ so freely laid His life down for all.
While sitting in this hospital room, I have done the thing that caused me to shudder. I have judged lives. This awkward moment has not been lost though because, for the moment, I am on high alert to catch myself and praying that the Spirit will do a greater work so that the only righteous judge of life's viability is glorified.
