Good evening friends!
I wanted to give you something to chew on these next few days. I am a big proponent of living a fantastic life, one FULL of joy and happiness. In order to do this effectively, there are a few key things that we must practice and learn. The quicker we learn these core habits, the quicker we experience FREEDOM! One of them (perhaps the toughest habit to break, for some) is to STOP JUDGING.
The saddest thing in the world is to lose out on knowing someone AMAZING because you were too busy judging them. With my life experiences I have been blessed to gain wisdom & knowledge along the way. Much of this wisdom and knowledge was given to me (thankfully!) by living through situations and gaining firsthand experience.
I NEVER form an opinion of a person based on someone else’s opinion of them. I form my opinions based on how people TREAT ME firsthand. Life is life and sadly, you will never fully agree (or get along) with everyone but how you REACT to these situations in life says SO much about your character.
Are you quick to jump in and tell the world how you feel about a particular person or do you refrain and take the higher road? Do you quickly form opinions of others based on things you have “heard” but not experienced? Something to reflect on. These things speak FAR greater volumes about you than about the person you are judging.
Sadly, many of us will never experience this level of personal growth because we are so trapped and intertwined in things of useless nature such as gossip, slander and an inability to connect as God intended us to.For others, it is past pains or emotional scars that keep us from living, growing and COMMUNICATING as we were meant to. We will NEVER and I mean NEVER come into the fullness of all that God has for us if we do not align ourselves with HIS words and HIS desires.
Today, I encourage you to do some soul-searching. Are you judging others based on your own experiences or those of others? Are you blocking your blessings by engaging in slander and gossip?
Are you missing out on knowing people because you harbor resentment that is not yours to harbor in the first place?
Some challenging and thought-provoking questions. As always, I love to get people thinking. I love to get people motivated and I above all love to help people live their BEST LIFE through aligning themselves with Gods promises! I hope this gave you something to reflect on this coming weekend.
Stop judging and starting LIVING. ❤
Blessings to you ALL!
