“Who are you to judge the life I live? I’m not perfect and I don’t have to be! Before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean.”-(Bob Marley)
For too long, we’ve seen people through the eyes of judgment. We tend to judge them by their behavior while we judge ourselves by our intentions. My challenge is to start seeing people through the eyes of love. The open secret is the fact that people are the way they are for a reason. If we took time and had the chance to know their stories, we would be much tolerating and forgiving. If we were to understand the battles they may have fought, their inconspicuous scars, their unhealable wounds and their impalpable pain, we would probably behave differently towards them and end up showing a lot of care and affection. Before you decide to judge a man’s life or character, try and walk in his shoes; for it’s much easier to understand one’s outward demeanor when you understand their stories!
