I just finished watching a documentary on a very well known person, and got a chance to see the real person behind the fame. It was very eye opening, and reminded me of why we should not be too quick too judge others. Often, what people choose to portray publicly is not always who they are privately. I guess that in some circles that is as common as a cup of coffee. My point is that before we decide to air our opinions about others, we should make sure to take the time to judge ourselves first. How many times have we been so quick to point out someone else’s shortcomings before examining our own? I have done that on a few occasions.
I have learned and continue to follow a teaching that most of us were taught as children. “If you can’t say something nice about someone, then don’t say anything.” We are all people with feelings and emotions. It is a very challenging thing to be unfairly judged no matter who you are or what you do for a living.
On the other hand, it is our responsibility to make sure we live as authentically as possible to give others a fair and just assessment of who we really are. There is a great deal of comfort in living your truth instead of a lie.
I will discuss the topic of “Living Your Truth” at a later time, but I hope that I have helped someone today to pause before pointing the finger at others.
” Do not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves.” Matthew 7: 1 Amplified
“Why do you stare from without at the very small particle that is in your brother’s eye but do not become aware of and consider the beam of timber that is in your own eye?” Matthew 7:3 Amplified
Love to you and blessings!
