Why are we so quick to judge, condemn, criticize, or attack others? When it comes to other people, we often become so intolerable of their mistakes and failings, while we are so gentle and slow in judging ourselves.
How good it will be if we can reverse the situation, if we can learn to be quick and very critical in judging ourselves, and gentle and slow in judging and criticizing our neighbours. The late Dr. Wayne Dyer, once said, if you have a choice to be kind or be right when dealing with others, choose to be kind.
Try to show a little kindness today and see what difference it will make in the lives of others and you too. Become more tolerable, more forgiving and less critical of others around you. And remember this message from our Lord, “If thy hand offend thee, cut it off,” is a word for our sins; for the sins of others, “Father, forgive them.”
