Judge

Lisa Brenninkmeyer

Each time we encounter our own failings or those of someone else, we can learn something. When we choose to refrain from judging someone, that doesn’t mean we turn around and offer blind trust. We need to read situations, and make wise decisions. Refraining from judging and offering forgiveness doesn’t mean we deny reality and put ourselves in unsafe or unhealthy situations…It does mean that we watch what we say about it to others, we monitor our thoughts about the person involved, and we nip resentment in the bud by remembering our own need for mercy.

Brant Hansen

God knows others’ private motives. We don’t. God knows our private motives. We don’t. We think we can judge others’ motives. We’re wrong.

Harry & Rosemary Wong

Make no mistake, we judge others by their dress, and they judge us too. It may not be fair. It may not be right. But people tend to treat other people as they are dressed…A salesperson sees two shoppers approaching, one appropriately dressed and the other inappropriately dressed. You know very well who will get immediate and better service.

In an ideal world, viewed through rose-colored glasses, it would be wonderful to be accepted for ourselves alone, not for our appearance. In the real world, however, our all-too-visible selves are under constant scrutiny.

Earl Nightingale

When you judge others, you do not define them, you define yourself.
