We don't have the right to judge people.

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery.

He answered the call asap, changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy's father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor.

On seeing him, the dad yelled: "Why did you take all this time to come? Don't you know that my son's life is in danger? Don't you have any sense of responsibility?"

The doctor smiled & said - "I am sorry, I wasn't in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call. And now, I wish you'd calm down so that I can do my work."

"Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??", said the father angrily.

The doctor smiled again & replied - "I will say what Job said in the Holy Bible "From dust we came & to dust we return, blessed be the name of God". Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go & intercede for your son, we will do our best by God's grace."

"Giving advises when we're not concerned is so easy", murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, "Thank goodness!, your son is saved!" And without waiting for the father's reply he carried on his way running. "If you have any questions, please ask the nurse."

"Why is he so arrogant? He couldn't wait some minutes so that I ask about my son's state?", commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: "His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son's surgery. Andnow that he saved your son's life, he left running to finish his son's burial."

We, humans, are creatures of emotions with our own sets of beliefs, prejudices and impressions. We don't see the world as it is, but as we are.

Everybody is going through their lives and we actually can never understanding what they are going through, just like nobody can understand exactly what you are going through.

Sometimes someone is irritated or angry and replies in a harsh way - that does not mean he/she is a bad person. We need to compassionate, helpful and patient to understand and love people.

Because Loving people is Loving GOD!

So never judge people, until you understand them!
