Mr. Judge

Once upon a time, there lived a wonderful being and his/her name was YOU.
OK, maybe you should scratch the Once upon a time part, but hey, do you judge others before you get to know them?
The old saying goes, ‘don’t judge a book by it’s covers’… Chuck Palahniuk says “We've spent so much time judging what other people created that we've created very, very little of our own.” So why judge others?
Anyways, I used to be a big ‘Mrs. Judge’ but then I asked myself, what makes me better than the next person?, We are all special in our different ways. Each one of us is unique. 
You know, Jesus once asked ‘Let Him without sin be the first to cast the stone’...
So the next time you complain about how dirty the environment is, ask yourself what you did with the sachet water wrapper you bought in traffic? where did you throw it?
or
He looks cheesy and corrupt. But you looked nice and cheated once in your exam right?

Or
He’s the worst guy you dated. I agree with you. But were you perfect?
Or
You are the first to condemn the government corruption. But you know, while they are no angels, are you one? If given the chance to rule, would you be better? Will your life book be squeaky clean? Do you steal meat from a pot of soup or steal time from your employer by not working and going on Facebook every 5 minutes? Or Oppress the lowly one?

The list can go on, it’s just about being honest to ourselves. But I just think that we shouldn't be too quick to judge others. Give everyone a fair chance. Let common sense guide you though. Treat people with love irrespective of how they look. Give people an opportunity to change. It wouldn't help if you don’t give them a chance.
(“How would your life be different if…You stopped making negative judgmental assumptions about people you encounter? Let today be the day…You look for the good in everyone you meet and respect their journey.” ― Steve MaraboliLife, the Truth, and Being Free)
Don’t be too quick to judge. And before you do, think again, am I qualified to talk ill of that person?…
Not easy though. I'm also talking to myself :)


“Love is the only mirror we must use to judge ourselves and others.” 


Would love to hear your thoughts on this, Please....
Happy 12-12-12. Grateful to God for today…Read a report that the next time we’ll see a 'perfect' date will be in 2101. Anyways, every day is a gift. Yup!!!

Have you watched ‘Seeking a friend for the end of the world’? It’s beautiful…Keira Knightly and Steve Carrel were amazing in the film. Check it out J
“There's nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater,you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.” 
Enjoy your night…..
Thank you so much for reading. Hugs J
