Judging Others - by Pastor Mike Wilde
Romans 2:1-16

A traveler, between flights at the airport, bought a small packages of cookies and sat down to read the newspaper. As she was reading, she heard a rustling noise and she was stunned to see a well dressed man seated next to her eating one of her cookies! Not wanting to make a scene, she leaned over and took one of the cookies. A minute or two passed and there was more rustling. The guy was having another cookie! They were coming to the end of the package and she was so angry, but held back from saying anything. Then, as if to add insult to injury, the man broke the remaining cookie in two, pushed half across to her, ate the other half, got up and walked away. She was fuming! When her flight was announced, the woman opened her handbag to get her boarding pass. The her shock and embarrassment, there she found her pack of unopened cookies!
