Don’t judge others without showing kindness

We often judge people when in fact we have no reason to do so. From a distance, it is easy to even condemn others and call them names, because we don’t care about them.

The question is: “Have we taken out time to show kindness before we judge them”? Do we know what they are going through on the inside? To build takes time, but to condemn only takes a few minutes.

People may not be as bad as they are been painted. Rather than judge or condemn them unfairly, take out time to first show them kindness.

I recently stumbled on a beautiful story online. It depicts the essence of showing true love rather than been hasty in passing out judgment on others. A story that teaches us the need for patience and kindness.

A couple had been married for several years without a child. For companionship, they bought a Rottweiler puppy, named it Miley, and loved her like a child.

The dog had access to all the rooms in the house. The puppy grew to become a large, beautiful dog and had on several occasions saved the couples from robbery. Miley was always faithful, loyal, and defended its owners against many dangers.

Seven years later, the couple was blessed with the long-awaited son. They were very happy with their son and naturally decreased the attention they had given to the dog. Miley felt neglected and began to get jealous of the baby.

One day the couple left the baby sleeping peacefully in his cradle and went to the terrace to prepare a roast. They were shocked as they were heading to the nursery and saw Miley in the hallway with a bloody mouth, wagging its tail.

The dog’s owner thought the worst, they pulled out weapons and began to beat the dog they had loved for many years… after so much beating, they killed the dog… then they rushed to the baby’s room, there was blood everywhere and blood dripping from the baby’s cot… they slowly walked to the cot and found a beheaded snake very close to the baby.


Miley killed the giant snake. Then they realized they had butchered an innocent dog who was faithful to its death. There was a pang of instant guilt that enveloped them when they realized how cruelly they had misjudged Miley’s intention.

How often have we misjudged people without finding out facts? How easy do you give up on those who are faithful to you? What the heart sees is far greater than what the eye sees.
Never judge people by their looks, present situation, and present lifestyle.


Most of us judge people by what we expect them to be, without finding out who they are. Not everyone can relate to you exactly what they feel and how they feel about you!!

How I wish Miley could talk. She would have expressed her love for her owners. The next time we are tempted to judge and condemn anyone, kindly remember the story of a faithful dog, Miley.

Don’t be too quick to judge others

So often in life, we judge others without allowing them to share their story and struggles. Looking at people from afar, and making hasty assumptions may not be accurate. We live in an imperfect society and we all have our strengths and weakness. Before you think about making an uninformed opinion about others, get to know them intimately, and understand why they behave the way they do.

If we judge others who are not opportune to tell what they going through, we make them vulnerable to been harshly criticized and haunted for things they may be innocent about. Rather than judge, let’s show more tolerance and share love always. I once stumbled on a story that illustrates why we shouldn’t be too hasty to judge others. It’s a touching story that has some lessons for everyone.

A 24-year old boy looking out through a train’s window shouted, Dad, look, “the trees are going behind; they are moving very fast” his Dad simply stared at him with so much joy and smiled! A young couple seated nearby looked at the 24-year old and thought to themselves, he’s so grown up but so childish, he must have a mental disorder for his father not to be bothered. Suddenly the young man exclaimed again; Dad, look, “the clouds are running with us” the couple could not resist and said to the old man, why don’t you take your son to a good doctor maybe a psychiatrist?

The old man smiled and said I just did. We are just coming from a doctor but not a psychiatrist; we are just coming from the hospital. My son was blind from birth. He just got his sight today for the very first time, his behavior may seem stupid to you, it’s more than a miracle to me. The young couple just sat down there, lost for words with a mixture of tears and shame in their eyes.


Everybody on earth has a story; don’t judge people so fast or jump into conclusion about their private affairs; you don’t know where they are coming from or what they have to deal with. The truth behind their story might surprise you. Take it easy with others, even if you have a perfect life. Let us keep working towards the good of all. Be kind always, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
