Judge me not (Isaiah 11:3-4)

And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.
He shall not judge by what his eyes see,
    or decide disputes by what his ears hear,
but with righteousness he shall judge the poor,
    and decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth,
    and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked.




Ever saw a man and a woman dining in a restaurant and immediately what comes to your mind is that they are lovers dating only to finds out that they are siblings? Ever had a new neighbor, a teenage pregnant woman who was called slut by many when in fact she was raped and conceived the child of the criminal? Ever met a very fat man whom you think, eats every hour, every minute which made him gain a thousand pound but the truth is he is suffering from SIADH?I thought….I thought. But those are wrong thoughts.

We do not have the right to judge other people. We should not judge so that we may not be judged. We haven’t been in a situation that they’ve been through to condemn them for their decisions and actions. Not because it is what you’ve seen does mean that it is what happened. Sometimes what we had witnessed is just a quarter of the whole part of the story. And never judge someone just because you heard some bad characteristics about him/her. Rumors and eavesdropping are unreliable measures to identify one’s personality. Use your heart and the conviction of the Holy Spirit. It is the most dependable thing that we could use whenever we wanted to take the right direction. Exercise righteousness and fairness.
