Quick To Judge

Leviticus 13_4

We (meaning “I”) are so quick to judge. We take in a situation, an action, a behavior, even simple words, and make a snap judgment. And sometimes we must.

Standing in the middle of the street with a bus barreling down toward you is not the time to contemplate the motives of the driver.

But too often we see or hear something, quickly (as in milliseconds) filter it through our grids of understanding, jump to conclusions, and then tweet or post for the world to see. We judge others and write them off…often, far too quickly.

So we miss out on beauty, blessing, and opportunities to learn and grow, as well as rich friendships…because we’re quick to judge.
