When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

Should You Judge Others?

Should you judge others?

Here is a true and very interesting story.

A doctor entered the hospital in a great hurry.  The hospital had called him in for an urgent surgery.  He answered the call as soon as he could, changed his clothes, and went directly to the surgery block.

There he found the boy’s father pacing the floor waiting for him. When the boy’s father saw the doctor, he yelled, “Why did you take all this time to come?  Don’t you know my son’s life is in danger?  Don’t you have ANY sense of responsibility?”

Politely the doctor smiled and said, “I am sorry.  I was not in the hospital and came as fast as I could after the hospital called me.  And now, I wish you would calm down so I can do my work.”

“Calm down?!  What if you son was in this room right now, would you calm down?  If your son dies now, what would you do?” asked the father angrily.

The doctor smiled again and replied, “I will say what Job said in the Bible ‘From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God’.  Doctors cannot prolong lives.  Go and intercede for your son, while we do our best by God’s grace.”

“Giving advice when you are not concerned is so easy!” murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours.  Immediately afterward, the doctor went out happy.  “Thank goodness, your son is saved!” he told the father.  And without waiting for the father’s reply, he carried on his way running.  “If you have any questions, ask the nurse!”

“Why is he so arrogant?  He could not wait for a few minutes so I could ask how my son is doing”, commented the father when he saw the nurse.

The nurse answered, tears streaming down her face.  “His son died yesterday in a road accident.  He was at his son’s burial when we called him for your son’s surgery.  And now that he saved your son’s life, he left as quickly as he could to finish burying his son.”

The moral is obvious.  Never judge anyone.  You cannot possibly know how his life is and what he is going through!

Also, always remember that you cannot judge someone and love someone at the same time, and you drag yourself down when you try to drag someone else down!  But loving others helps yourself as well as others!  So it is far better to love someone than to judge him.

Be a world changer!  Love others around you instead of judging them!

Enable everyone around you to soar like an eagle over life’s storms.  Do not judge others and try to drag them down!
