Why the World Needs Less Judgement
Today I want to be transparent with whoever out there's reading this right now.
In my experience, hate has come in all different shapes and sizes. Hate comes in the form of prejudice. Often, it comes in the form of prejudice—people judging others based off of only the color of their skin. Unfortunately, the problem of racial prejudice is ongoing, but let me tell you something—we all have the capacity to be the change we wish to see in this world. If you've ever faced prejudice, you understand how difficult it makes everything feel. Prejudice expresses the notion that someone is somehow worth less than someone else just because of their skin color, but let me tell you something.
God created you to be you.
At the end of the day, we are nothing but love. I'm going to be real with you for a second—we only have one life. No one is immortal, and we're all going to die. We're all going to leave this earth in the same way, because we're all human. It's time to focus mor on what we have in common than our differences, and now, more tha ever, it's time to spread love everywhere we go. Trust me—I know how it feels to be judged. I have dreadlocks and tattoos, and when I go running and say hello to the people along my path, I say things like, "Have an awesome day." I say things like, "God bless you," and often, they don't say anything back. Instead, they move further away from me.
Stop misjudging people. I've said it time and time again, but I'll say it again—no one has the right to judge anyone's present before understanding their past. No one has the right to judge who you are, and no one has the right to put labels on you. Let me ask you something—are your intentions good, or could they be better? Are you trying to help this world heal, or are you tearing it down even more? We can all spread more love, and the truth is, we have to—love's all we've got. United, we can stand taller than any one piece of ourselves. There's a division in this world right now, and there are many people holding hatred and prejudice in their hearts. There are many people who judge books by their covers, and there are far too many of us who cannot say that we're truly colorblind. What does colorblind mean to me? It means judging someone's character instead of their color. It means remembering that we're all brothers and sisters, and every single one of us was created by God for a specific purpose. This week, I challenge you to spread more love.
It all starts with you.
