Encouragement is better than Judgement.

Judge with gavel

   “Only a kind person is able to judge another justly and to make allowances for his weaknesses, A kind eye, while recognizing defects, sees beyond them.”
Lawrence G.Lovasik

     I have often written about how the phrase in  Matthew saying “Thou shalt not judge”, is usually taken out of context, but I was reminded yesterday how careful we should be with our judgements.  Everyone has different road blocks in life, many people have had emotional experiences that have broken them, health issues, and or other things that get in their way, that we would have trouble dealing with as well.

I once heard a story of a clumsy, and slow cashier. After one customer treated him like trash, and another showed him love, it was then revealed that his mother, his only family member had committed suicide that morning, since he was now responsible for all of the bills in the house, he could not afford to skip work.  No one with a heart would judge him negatively after hearing that. Most people have heartbreaking stories about their past. Stories that would make us regret the way we often treat people. When it is possible  don’t make negative judgements, give them positive encouragement , and advice, but make sure you know their story  before personally passing out negative judgements about things that don’t put others in danger.
