Don't Judge A Man

By Moises Padin Reconalla

Moses3 Our world is full of bad tongues, fault-finders, gossipers, mockers, and insulters but do these groups of individuals qualify to judge a man by his failures, mistakes and short-coming committed in his life? Are these toxic, negative people were given honor in the history of mankind for judging a foolishness to their fellow brothers, friends, relatives and neighbors? And how can we deal with this group of certain difficult people?

I advised you, dear readers to read this article and you will be blessed!

When I was a young boy and until now, I am always encountered a certain bad tongues, fault-finders, gossipers, mockers, and insulters group of individuals. Through the curiosity of this tiny computer of mine, I starting digging, reading, and searching the profiles and writings of the great wise men in the world to find out if these groups of toxic, negative individuals were given honor in the history of mankind. Through my research dear readers, I discovered and found out that a statue has never, never been erected in honor for a critic!

Teddy Roosevelt, the late great President of America once says, “In the battle of life, it is not the critic who counts; nor the one who points out how the strong person stumbled, or where the doer of a deed could have done better.

The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends oneself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he or she fails, at least fails while daring greatly. Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”

I’ve found out that before any great accomplishment is achieved in reality, it’s believed in heart. If you need to hear the applause of the crowd, you have to begin your attack in the face of criticism, believing that the applause will come later.

My dear readers, if you are the victims with this group of negative, toxic people, I advised and encouraged you, encourage yourself to stand-up like the Statue of Liberty of United States of America to confront, to remind, and to answer them with these words…

Don’t judge a man by the clothes he wears. God made the one, the tailor made the other.

Don’t judge a man by his family relations, Cain belonged to the best family.

Don’t judge a man by his speech, a parrot can talk. Tongue is but an instrument of sound.

Don’t judge a man by his failures in life. Many a man has failed whom God exalted to the highest place.

Don’t hit a man when his down. Lift him up. You yourself maybe down someday and may need a friendly hand!

People remember this; no one will feel you inferior without your consent!

Therefore, Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage, for thus the Lord our God will do to all your enemies against whom you fight! (Joshua 10:25). What shall you need to do, is to call Him and God promised, He will answer you and show you the great and mighty things which you do not know (Jeremiah 33:3).

Finally, dear readers ponder as well as think of this: it’s better to be a lion for one day than to be a sheep for the whole life!

Wish you many blessings to come and God bless!
