Let us never judge others by the tattoos on their body, the clothes that they wear or the style of their hair … let us simply be aware of the light that shines from within when they stand silent in prayer.

I wrote this many years ago. It has been seen by thousands and shared hundreds of times through social media. It is so important that we stand by this and learn this as we journey through life. I for one learned this as one of my lessons in life. We each have our own reality, our own set of rules that we established as we grew up and as we become adults. Somehow the next part of that rule setting process was the application of our rules upon others. How sad is that. For when we think about it, would we want to have a set of rules placed upon us that were created by another who is as broken and flawed as we.
The ultimate rule maker, counselor, teacher was Christ. Jesus gave us the set of rules “standards” by which we are to live our lives. Love one another and do not judge! Matthew 7:1-3 “Do not judge, so that you won’t be judged. 2 For you will be judged by the same standard with which you judge others, and you will be measured by the same measure you use. 3 Why do you look at the splinter in your brother’s eye but don’t notice the beam of wood in your own eye?”
I realize this post may not seem as relevant to my consumers as most. I was guided to add this post so that my readers, those I serve as a consumer advocate, can understand the underlining foundation that guides my thoughts as I work to protect their interests. I’m am simply God’s kid. Just as you are. No matter where you are in your spiritual path, we are truly all one. So let’s find common ground through which we can serve the common good of mankind. Thank you and God Bless. Wayne
