The Boomerang Effect

💁🏻‍♀️Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are. How much time do we all spend judging others? In life there is always two sides to a coin and a situation. We in the church have to guard against this sin toward others so prevalent today. It’s not loving, nor helpful, nor encouraging to judge others (believers or unbelievers). “What about love? Where’s your love? Where’s the love of Christ we are representing?” 
🤨
The Lord Jesus Christ said, “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults— unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. ” 
—(Matthew 7:2. The Message)

My grandfather used to tell me, “anytime you point your finger at someone, you have three other fingers pointing right back at you” (try this yourself by looking at your hand pointed at someone). Be very careful the next time you feel the desire to haul off and make hasty conclusions about someone else’s life. The old native American proverb still stands, “until you walk a mile in that man’s moccasins, hold your tongue.”

Watch out for the flying boomerangs!
