{ Judge Not }

Everyone has a story in life.

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…

“Dad, look the trees are going behind!”

Dad smiled and as a young couple sitting nearby looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, 
suddenly he again exclaimed…

“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…

“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?” 

The old man smiled and said…
“I did and we are just coming from the hospital. 
My son was blind from birth and he just got his eyes today.”

Every single person on the planet has a story. 

Don’t judge people before you truly know them. 

The truth might surprise you.

  5. Oh, that is a beautiful story. I worked with people with disabilities for many years, and began to see things through a different perspective.

  8. So true. You never what someone's been through.
    And who knows how we might have acted given the same circumstances.
    Great post.

  9. Oh yes! What a powerful message today. We need to be slow to judge... I am sometimes guilty of being too quick to judge people and situations, and then get humbled when I find out how wrong I was. Thank you for this reminder. I need to be reminded often!
