- Do you think others could be more considerate and less selfish?
- Do you believe you would help someone if they were in need?
- Do you say you would clean their house if needed and they wouldn’t have to ask you?
- Do you buy the same gift for your colleagues at Christmas so it would not appear that you were showing favoritism?
Many or us most likely replied ‘yes’ to the above questions. That’s what we utter… But what would we really do if the situation materialized?
Have we always helped the homeless and panderers when they asked for money to buy a sandwich?
Could we honestly clean our friend’s house after working forty hours on our job?
Would we buy all of our colleagues the same gift if we were closer to one than the others?
We must ask God to help us to not be critical and judgmental of others because they don’t do things the way we would do them or think the way we think.
We beseech our Heavenly Father to help us keep our mouths shut and not say anything when we’re feeling critical.
We request that Jehovah help us keep the negative thoughts out of our minds and hearts, for out of the heart comes the issues of life; and what a man (woman) thinks is the way they are.
It’s easy to complain and criticize when we’re on the opposite side of the fence.
Criticizing another’s garden doesn’t keep the weeds out of your own.
