Don’t Judge

Julia went to school in the neighboring village where she wasn’t known well. For three weeks, she came to school late and every time the teacher punished her. On the fourth week, Julia didn’t attend school at all and many thought she had given up on school due to the everyday punishment. However, Julia reported again on fifth week and this time she came earlier than everybody. When the teacher came to class, Julia was punished for not attending school the previous week but the teacher was also kind enough to commend her for coming early that day, stating that the punishments had finally yielded some results. Just then, Julia asked if she could say something and the teacher gave her permission. She started, ” I’ve been raised up by a single mother without a brother or a sister. Five weeks ago, my mother got sick and was hospitalized. The three weeks I came late, I had to prepare something for her and pass by the hospital to deliver the same. Unfortunately, my mother passed on last week and the reason I didn’t come to school. We buried her last Friday. Today I came early since I didn’t have to prepare anything or even pass by the hospital. And now that she is gone, I will always be here early.” As she sat down, no one in the whole class was able to hold their tears, the teacher not spared.

How many times do we judge and punish others for some sorts of lateness.
When will you find a job? When will you move out? When will you get
married? When will you get pregnant? …..and the list goes on. Do we
attempt to understand their situations or we just judge from the ‘best
case scenarios’ Some situations are not relative and what we think could
be very far from the truth.
God bless you.
