Quick To Judge

Updated: Apr 9, 2020

We are quick to criticise others and very slow to criticise ourselves.

As if we ourselves hold some kind of moral high ground that allows us to judge others.

Why do we direct so much time and energy on what others do and so little time focusing on what we could or should be doing?

The point is, to live and let live.

There’s utility in directing attention to your own shortcomings

To your own role in the world and your responsibilities in it

To get your own house in order, before you even contemplate criticising anyone else.

One thing I do know, is that no single person is perfect, so there’s no point maintaining the façade.

We all have our demons,

Our struggles

Our successes and our failures

But it’s how you respond that ultimately makes the difference

To be able to view the world as an opportunity, rather than a hindrance

An opportunity to grow

An opportunity to develop your character

An opportunity to build resilience

An opportunity to contribute

All the while trying to get the best out of yourself and those around you in every situation.

Being quick to pass judgement does nothing but direct attention away from what you need to do

Direct attention away from what your responsibilities are

Direct attention away from where you need to do better

Beyond that, it has very little utility at all.

Let he without sin cast the first stone, the story goes.

So, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly enough to remove the speck from your brothers eye...
