The “fit” of others’ moccasins
Unless we really care enough
To try to walk a block in them.
The moccasins may be well-worn,
And wearing them our feet would bruise.
Probably we’d hurry back
And welcome wearing our own shoes.
We cannot point and say we know
How rough a path some folks may walk.
We only prove we have blind spots
In how we reason and we talk.
Only Jesus knows their pain,
And He will help them bear their weight.
But if we think we understand,
With judgment we should hesitate.
“Be honest in your judgment and do not decide at
a glance - superficially and by appearances;
but judge fairly and righteously.”
John 7:24 Amplified Bible
