This morning on my way to work, I boarded a bus and on the way other passengers were picked up.
One particular person had only half the normal fare and sincerely told the driver so; but the guy getting the money (also known as bus conductor) criticised him badly for thinking he could board the bus with such small money. Shortly after driving off without picking up the guy, it dawned on me that I could have paid his fare...not because I had so much money but because that little change could be all the guy had and offering help would definitely not be out of place!
I had my regrets but the lesson was well Learned-DONT JUDGE, CRITICISE OR VERBALLY ATTACK OTHERS WITHOUT KNOWING THEIR OWN STORY.
I Didnt get to ask the guy in question how he felt on receiving such bad criticism because of the little he had but I just know he would feel bad and probably downcast.
Sometimes we kill people without knowing. Some suicide cases were instigated by people who till tomorrow don't realise that they were the cause of someone else's death somewhere.
If you have nothing good to say to someone, say nothing at all. But if you must speak, then speak to edify and save.
Let your words be so seasoned with salt and grace so that the hearers will be edified and helped and not stabbed in the heart!-col 4:6
A better society begins from You and Me and the little things we say and do to ourselves and others.
Before you spit out that judgmental statement or seize the food from that fellow's mouth ,think what he/she may be going through. Is he/she surviving on their last emotional strength, is that the only thing he/she has to call "mine" in the whole world. THINK please..
Don't deliver the death blow.
Lets work towards a better society where we live more and suicide no longer exist.
