You Don’t Know Me..

Good evening everyone! I hope all of you are doing well tonight. I thought I would come on here and write a little bit.

So.. Have you ever had someone judge you without them really knowing who you are? I know I have. I think it happens to the majority of us everyday with out us even knowing about it.

On the other hand, thoughts about the way someone looks, their lifestyle, their driving, etc.. go through our minds on a constant basis. I am not speaking for everyone here, but really some people don’t even realize they do it. I am not innocent on this, even I do it.

Jesus calls us not to though. We aren’t supposed to judge someone at all. It isn’t our place to do so. We may recognize what they are doing/not doing as a sin, but that is all we can do. Judging is a #1 no-no with God.

Matthew 7:1 (American Standard)

Judge not, that ye be not judged.

The question I leave for you this evening is this..

Do you judge others? If so, why? How do you plan to change that?

Until next time readers, God Bless!

The Measure of a Man

Today I wanted to discuss what it means to be a man in this world. The obvious answer has to deal with anatomy, but that isn’t what I am talking about.

What makes a man, a man? Is he supposed to be measured by his financial success, social life, spiritual life, athletic ability; what?

In my opinion a man is in today’s society is measured mostly on his financial success. Money is definitely one of the biggest things out there that we are judged by. I have heard a lot of people say that you aren’t successful unless you are rich. I have dealt with this issue in my head a lot in my past, and have come to realize that this isn’t necessarily true. There are several ways that we can be successful , and not be rich.

Another way I think that a man is measured in society is by his appearance. Now ladies I know this is something that you deal with as well, so I am not trying to exclude you from the issue. I am just saying that society judges our appearance as well. If a man is overweight, he is considered lazy. If he doesn’t dress well, he is considered a slob. I could go on and on.

I want to also mention that man is measured on his intelligence as well. Even though it isn’t the most popular thing to be considered, being a geek, dork, dweeb, nerd, or whatever actually has its’ perks. Intelligence kind of falls into that success category. A college education is huge! It is even getting to where an associates degree is being compared to a high school diploma. The higher the education you have, the more successful you will be.

The last thing I wanted to touch on today was a man’s spiritual life. In today’s society, that really isn’t measured that much. Why not? In my opinion, a man’s spiritual life develops and maintains his character as a person. I am not saying that we should be judging of others that don’t have a spiritual life, or even a weak one; what I am saying is that this part of a man should be at least considered.

What are your thoughts? How is someone measured to you? What characteristics of a person are most important to you?

Until next time readers, God Bless!
