For me, this is how I choose friends. And yes, I have judged people, I stood myself on a pedestal and thought I was better than anyone else. I stopped myself. We are only human. People have feelings. Would you like someone to judge you on how you judge them? Stop being judgmental. Show love. Show kindness.
I thank people who work for the people. Retail (cashiers, sales associates), food industry (fast food workers, waiters, chefs). Sure, they are others but those who I see daily. I say hello, thank you, have a great day. I say these things, not because of its manners but because I want to. I want to show kindness. I want to show love.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” – Romans 3:23
I don’t care if you are black, white, Asian, South American, gay, or transgender. Why would you be kind to some of those people? They are sinning against God. We are all sinning and sure, some sins are worst than others but don’t give us the right to look down on them on a pedestal. It makes us like the rabbis who judged Jesus on His life on earth. Do you want to know as hypocrites?
Today, society makes fun of people’s appearance. It is like its hilarious. Let’s make fun of plus sizes, skinny people. They are human too. Your words hurt people. They can cause self-harm, beating down someone’s confidence, and in some cases, suicide. Remember that each person you interact with is a human and they have feelings.
Show love. Not hate.
