Friends Beneath the Surface

The other day I was watching one of those amazing Planet Earth documentaries produced by the BBC which captures incredible footage of the oceanic white tip shark. After the documentary, they show how they got this incredible footage; the days they spent on the boat hunting for the sharks; how they chummed the water to attract them, diving into the water without air tanks or protection; and relying only on observation, nerves and experience. At several points, the sharks got so close they were literally bumping into the cameras. I was amazed that no one was attacked or killed! What impressed me even more was their courage, how they watched out for one another; and when it became too intense

Good Judgement

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged…. Why do you see the speck in your neighbor's eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? ….No good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit; for each tree is known by its own fruit….the good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good, and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.” – Luke 6: 37-45 Do you ever feel torn between the goal of being “non-judgmental” and the desire to practice “good judgment”? When Jesus says, “Do not judge!” he is talking especially about making final judgments about others; about self-righteous slander
