A Lenten Collect to Not be Quick to Judge

Heavenly Father, who knows the thoughts and intentions of our hearts, let us not be quick to condemn others when they do what we disapprove of, for we do not know their hearts, and only you can judge in true righteousness, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. ‘Jesus said, “Leave her alone. She bought it so that she might keep it for the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”‘ – John 12:7-8
