Last week a few friends and I were discussing how often we have judged or misjudged people and how frustrated we were with ourselves for doing so. Each of us gave examples of people we had judged according to their skin color, cultural differences, their appearance or even their weight. We recognized that by being so critical of people we were not being good examples of Christianity. I believe that most of us have been guilty of unkind thoughts and comparisons of “those people.” You know who they are right? To judge anyone who does fit what we deem to be “normal” or in other words, like us. Our group agreed that we were going to work very intentionally to change the way we see people, to look at them through a lens of love and respect and not of judgment.
