1 March 2021 — IF YOU JUDGE PEOPLE YOU HAVE NO TIME TO LOVE THEM, Mother Theresa
I suspect that many of us do not find NOT judging people easy but consider our ‘selves’ to love the people we are judging. Having come across this saying this morning I am still trying to understand it in my heart rather than in my head.
When we judge people, yes, we are criticising them but are we not just seeing them as they are and still loving them? But then there are sayings which advise us to ‘love ourselves and others warts and all’ which of course means accepting ourselves exactly as we and they are.
IF YOU JUDGE PEOPLE YOU HAVE NO TIME TO LOVE THEM = so once again ACCEPTANCE is the order of the day — ACCEPT ‘whatever’ and ‘whoever’ in the moment.
As I write this a little voice is telling me ‘It won’t be in THIS lifetime!
