My coworker and I were talking about it and we realized that we were "lovingly chastised" by our Prophet. In a matter of words, he told us there is a lot of pettiness (mean or ungenerous in small or trifling things) going on today among women. And in a matter of words, he told us to stop.
We absolutely needed to hear that.
I can't help but
If you judge someone, you have no time to love them.
Eliza R. Snow is one of my heroes - she told the women in the Nauvoo Relief Society how it was. No mincing words. No fluff. She gave it to them straight; we need more of that today. The problem is, when we do "get it straight," so many people get offended. It is sad when offense is taken at something the God is trying to tell His daughters. It wasn't just President Monson's idea to talk to us about charity, righteously judging others, and "dirty laundry vs. dirty windows," it was God's idea.
Yes, we are good, but the purpose of being "here" is to get better.
Stop. Listen. Smile. God loves us.
