Passing Judgement

A lovely little girl was holding two apples in her hands.
Her mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile; my sweetie, could you give your mum one of your apples?
The girl looked up at her mom for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.
Mom felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mom, and said: mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, never pass your judgement too quickly. Give others the privilege to explain themselves.                             
Never jump to conclusions; what you see may not be the reality. Which is why we should never focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

    Not only what we hear, but what we see with our own eyes could also be deceptive.....May not be the reality. we need to look further and deeper before passing judgment on others.

  4. Thank you Datta ji.
    It is a hindrance indeed. We cannot keep an eye on our own path if we are constantly looking at others and passing judgments on their beliefs and actions.

  6. Very good example, it really hits home. As parents we are quick to prejudge our own kids actions because we have such high expectations for them.
