Some times you meet someone for the first time and all you feel tempted to do is to judge him or her, without realising that you do not even have the complete information about the person. But how correct can your judgement be?
Just like you, the other person is not perfect. So what makes you think you are in a perfect place to judge the other person?
Here are 3 simple reasons you should resist the temptation to be judgemental:
1. You do not know where the person is coming from
A man is a product of many things in his life. One of it is his experiences…
How he behaves now is somewhat a reflection of what he has been through in the past. So if you judge him by only what you see now, you are most likely to misjudge him.
2. You do not understand what the person is going through right now
Apart from what a man might have been through in the past, what he is going through right now also affects his disposition to life.
Granted, you may see that he is going through stuff but you will never understand it in and out. So don’t judge him by what you see because there is so much more happening behind the scene that you do not see.
3. You do not know the person’s future.
What you see about any body is not all there is to him or her. So don’t judge him because he or she does not fit into your mould or expectations.
A man may be down today but do not judge him as out. Being a fellow human being, you are grossly limited by your senses. What the future holds for the person may be far beyond what your natural eyes can perceive.
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged” Matthew 7:1-2, NLT.
