Have you ever looked at someone and passed judgement on them just by the first impression of what you saw? Let’s say if you saw someone dressed in a very torn dirty shirt walking down the road with no footwear….what would you think? Would you immediately judge the person thinking that maybe he or she was a homeless person? Think about it….where does your mind go? or maybe someone was speeding and driving really fast ….what did you think? Did you immediately judge them and get mad and cuss at the situation and say…”what a lousy driver they are?” Only you can answer this question….where does your mind go? Do you pass judgement or not?
Let’s take a look at this from another perspective on passing NO JUDGEMENT…. taking the same scenario, the person who had a dirty torn shirt and without footwear could be a very rich and well to do person but just had an unexpected encounter with a dog who had chased him down the road as he lost his slippers along the way trying to get away and he then squeezed through a fence that had ripped his shirt as he tripped and fell in mud all because he was trying to escape from harm. Instead of judging the person…you could simply ask him if he needs any help.???
In the other scenario, the speeding driver just got an emergency phone call that her daughter was in a bad hiking accident and was flown to the hospital via a medical helicopter in critical condition with a prognosis that she wasn’t going to make it.
Wow! doesn’t that make you look at things differently?
So, if you see someone speeding pray for them and their families for protection of what they might be going through instead of drawing your own conclusions and judging people because that is foolish thinking. That is why it is very important to always remember that we DO NOT know anyone’s story….so DO NOT JUDGE anyone on how they look or by their actions but instead have a mindset to show more compassion and love for another person. YOU would appreciate, that people do not judge you right?…so why do it to others? It’s something to think about and change the way we see things.
