On Judging

To judge is to cross a line. Consider the lines in the road used to motor vehicles along safely. One line is white dashes.cross that line and you are in danger of hurting someone and your self. Your chances of recovery are high.

The solid white line means you’re about to take your vehicle where it should never be, off the road.

And the yellow lines; well you get the idea.

Our judgment of people is similar. We have never liked being judged and never will. Yet so many cross that line everyday. If it’s a brief and small crossing, then the relationship may recover, even grow.

Yet most judgments are not to build a relationship but to vent anger and displeasure, even fear.

Judging  others does little or no good for anyone and does a lot of harm.

Stay in your lane, get to where you are going and others will too.
