A couple was at their home one day when the husband saw through their window how dirty their neighbour’s house was.
The husband then told his wife how dirty their neighbour’s house was and about them being lazy and not cleaning their own home. This continued on everyday for some time until one day the husband saw that the neighbour’s house was clean, then he went and told his wife “looks like our neighbour has finally decided to clean their house“.
His wife answered “no dear, I just cleaned our window“. The neighbour’s house has been clean the whole time but because the husband has been looking through his own dirty window, he thought it was their house that was dirty.
Some of us are quick to judge people’s flaws but when we take a look at ourselves, we will see that we are no better off. Sometimes we might even judge others wrongly just like the husband who thought that it was the neighbour’s house was dirty but it was actually his own home that is dirty.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. — Matthew 7:1-5
When you judge others of lying, have you yourself lied? or when you judge others of disrespecting their parents, have you disrespected yours? When we want to judge others, we must first examine ourselves.
If someone tells you not to lie but they do it all the time would you listen to them? Of course not. So before you judge others, examine yourself and deal with your own problems before helping others to deal with theirs.
When you judge others, do it not out of hate or pride to insult or embarrass but out of love and care to help and edify.
But what is Love?
Is it sex? Is it an emotion? A feeling?
Or is there something more?
You won’t have to wonder for long!
Here is a true story of a close friend’s journey to find the source of love! http://famecherry.com/love/one-kg-of-love/
Hi, my name is Jo, I has gone through much emotional abuse, my life have been full of depressions but God reached out to me and gave me a place to be free of all the negativity.
Even though I was deep in the darkness, God helped me out slowly but surely despite the circumstances I was in and now I am glad to be sharing God’s love with you!
