Judgemental?

A man came home from work and found his four children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out of the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"
She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?"

"Yes" was his incredulous reply.

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."


Another example of things not always being as they appear, but also how we assume so easily and tend to judge upon our assumptions and beliefs, without really knowing what, how and why. In my humble opinion, the knocking, seeking and asking should also be applied more to our relationship with others. It not only makes for better communication, but also pegs the real need.

God knows our hearts. We can't know someone else's, unless we ask and seek. And often you have to knock several times before it's opened. But when it does, we can fill the need with love and care. They are worth the effort. If God thinks we all are worth it, then why don't we! :-)

John 7:24
Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”

Very nice post, Corry!
And so true...so many times we assume the worst or misinterpret a situation. Trust can go such a long way! (I'm definitely speaking to myself here!)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Angela,
I think it would work, although going shopping for the whole day and leave hubby with the kids, might have the same effect, hehe.

Happy ThanksGiving to y'all!

Cinder!!!!!!!!!!
Wow girl, so good to see you. Missed you around. Hope y'all are doing well. I had wanted to mail you a couple of times, then got busy and totally forgot, sigh. Senior-moments are tough sometimes.

May God bless y'all abundantly and Happy ThanksGiving!

Christie,
You are not alone in it, I do know what you mean!
I wonder if pride is the culprit of us thinking we know it all.

Happy ThanksGiving to you and yours!

Pia,
I suspect there is not one person who is not guilty of this. The option to repent is always present! :-)

Happy ThankGiving to you too, girl. We keep remembering you in our prayers.

(((HUGS)))
