6 Skills You Need for this Season

Over the course of five days, you’ll see a daily post with a devotion helping you explore the role of empathy at this time. It follows a similar pattern to the “God is with Us” devotional.

You won’t get a daily email. Simply know the devotional is here waiting for you for the next six days. Instead of a written devotional, this is a video devotional. The scripture, prayer, and questions for reflection are listed below.

Today, let’s explore the second skill needed to practice empathy: being non-judgmental. If you missed the first skill, you can watch the devotion for skill 1, perspective taking, here

Skill 2: Being Non-judgmental


John 8:1-11


Where are you prone to judge others? Consider the places you feel inadequate or are the most susceptible to shame.


Today, practice non-judgment. Acknowledge your feelings. Remain accountable. Extend love and compassion. Apply these statements to yourself, too.


Jesus, forgive me for the places I judge others and help me to stand in a place of compassion and wisdom today and always. Amen.


Tonight, after 8 p.m. join us on the Transforming Mission Facebook page to respond to the following question (or feel free to comment below).

Where did you judge others today? What did you do to practice non-judgment?
