Judge NotA Story to Ponder:

One day Abba Isaac went to a monastery.  He saw a brother committing a sin and  he condemned him.  When he returned to the desert, an angel of the Lord came and stood in front of the door of his cell, and said, “I will not let you enter.”
But the Abba persisted saying, “What is the matter?”
The angel replied, “God has sent me to ask you into what prison you want to throw the guilty brother whom you have condemned.”
Immediately Abba Isaac repented and said, “I have
sinned, forgive me.”
Then the angel said, “Get up, God has forgiven you. But from now on, be careful not to judge someone before God has done so.”
