I was speaking with a family member today and I had an unkind thought come into my mind about them along the lines of “They don’t know what they’re talking about.” and with the idea that they haven’t really come to their convictions on their own, but have gone along with other people’s beliefs on it.
I remember resisting it, but there was also a few moments where I think I agreed with it in that kind of mean judging way with a smirk (you can picture the kind of expression I’m talking about).
I didn’t say anything to them, but just had that thought. After I noticed I had agreed with it, I think I remember trying to resist it because I could tell it was unkind.
I felt bad about it afterwards and asked God to forgive me and lead me to be humble and kind.
But I’m afraid I committed mortal sin by accepting the thought for a few moments.
I’m wondering if I should receive the Eucharist tomorrow or not because of this.
I’ve had this problem before with the same family member. But I find that I can be judgmental in my thoughts in general and I am not happy with it.
Wouldn’t mind any advice on how to be less judgmental of others too.
Thank you for your help.
