Quick to Love, slow to Judge

Quick to Love, slow to Judge

Ephesians 5:2

          You are instructed to walk in love. To esteem and delight yourself in others, you have to first get to know others, which is an act of love. It takes time and effort to look beyond the surface of any human being. Too often, we are tempted to judge hastily, but the Word says, “Be honest in your judgment and do not decide at a glance (superficially and by appearances): but judge fairly and righteously” (John 7:24).

          Before you judge an individual, you must take time to get to know the real person. Everyone has their little quirks, oddball actions, behaviors, and imperfections. God Himself does not judge by appearance - He looks on the heart. You should follow His example. As the saying goes, “never judge a book by its cover”!E
