Kicked out of church?

KICKED OUT OF CHURCH?

I admit it. I can be judgmental if I let myself. So many times we may see a weird haircut or weird clothes on someone and we immediately recoil and wonder if that person is crazy. We may look at piercings in strange places and tattoos on a person and think, “Why do they like looking like that?”

Then we speculate and and wonder if they are normal. However, what is normal?

Judging someone on their appearance is just one way we stand in judgment of others. The other way is being judgmental on the actions and lifestyles of others.

For example, I have watched two people dining in a restaurant with one dinner and two plates. I watch and I wonder if they are poor.
