Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy
It’s not always easy to be objective or fair when it comes to others. We unconsciously often place or needs, families, and wants first. How simple is it to hear a situation and judge someone for it? Yet, we so easily ignore our own skeletons! When talking to others about life we have to take into consideration that we all live differently. We each have different standards and choices. It is not fair to judge or segregate anyone based on their beliefs, behaviors, or opinons.
We must also be more aware of how we treat others and how others treat each other. No one deserves to be treated unfairly or unjust. This past week we have witnessed so much unfair treatment and horrible actions in our world. Nothing positive comes out of unfairness or unjust actions. Negativity just breeds more negativity. It’s our duty to stand up for what’s right and just on a daily basis. If we don’t start creating a change today, there will be no positive difference tomorrow.
I urge each of us to be the example that society and our children need. When you catch yourself being unfair or judgment stop and re-evaluate your actions and words. When you see others being unfair, speak out and help them to see the pain that their actions cause. When we witness unjustified actions on media, pray and do what you can for your communities and the communities of others.
“Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.”
