Our Fault is Others’ Doing?


Imagine this: You leave your apartment in the morning for a trip downtown. You are wearing your most fashionable outfit, favorite perfume, you are looking like a billion dollars and you go to catch a bus. As you hurry out through your back door, you pick a small sack of garbage in the kitchen with the intention of tossing it in the rubbish container on the road on your way to catch your bus. But you get so preoccupied with your thoughts and forget to toss the garbage. So you carry it along with your other packages onto the bus. As you take your seat, you percieve this terrible stench. You opened the window, to no avail. Later, through out the day, you notice this stench is in every store you visited. As human, forgetting about the garbage, we would have concluded……… The whole world stinks! chei. Only to return home and open your packages, and realize you are the chief supplier of the worlds’ stench. Summary: Before you begin to point that your ever correct finger at other people, it would be smart to check out your own packages first. The ‘stink’ you smell may not be from others – it may be your own! Jesus had this to say about judging other people: “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults-unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging (Matthew 7:1-2), Jesus was right. Always and always make sure you have taken out your stinking garbage first before you begin to criticize the garbage of those around you. Writer- Tunbosun Oke
