Are you dealing out judgment or mercy to others.
When you see that young lady at the grocery store with a infant in the buggy and three small children along side; there is an opportunity for you. Her kids may be running around acting out of control. They may not be minding her and getting on your last nerve while you attempt to grocery shop. There is an opportunity for you. You have the opportunity to judge her. You would never let your children act like that. You would show them something. You could ask yourself; does she not discipline her kids. What does she think they are going to be like when they are grown. Somebody needs to do something and do something now to them. However, what you don’t know is; she is a single mom, working two jobs and still having trouble making ends meet. She is having to really focus on what she can buy because of her strict and limited budget. What you don’t know is she is doing the absolute best parenting job that she can do. She probably is doing a better job at what she is doing with what she has to work with than… So instead of judging her; how about going and paying for her groceries and allowing her to get more than she thought she could. Instead of condemning her; why not get her a babysitter so she can go out one night. You have an opportunity to judge or show mercy. Lets be quicker to show mercy than judge others. You can make a difference in a positive way today. Be a blessing. Are you being a positive difference today?
