Too often we fail to heed the words of Jesus, "Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;"

It's all too easy to pass quick judgment upon others, all the while minimizing our own failures. This little video illustrates judging too quickly pretty well. :0)

Edit: After I posted this, I watched it to make sure I embedded the file correctly and my son walked up and saw it. He said, "Dad? What did he do?" I said, "What do you think he did? He said, "eat poop!"

Yes, he needs to learn to not judge too quickly as well. :)

That's funny! And gross. :) My mother tried to instill in me the principle, "Always give the benefit of the doubt." Sometimes I need to be reminded of that. I think it's best to always make an effort to think the best of people, to look for what is good. This attitude is actually a powerful form of spiritual warfare against a critical spirit and/or religious spirit. I actually posted something with a similar theme. It's about Mary getting pregnant with Jesus and outward appearances. The post is called "Love Child". :)

I so dislike being pre-judged so I really make an attempt not to treat others that way. True colors will eventually shine through, good or bad.
