THE TRAGEDY OF NOT BEING JUDGEMENTAL
Judge not, that ye be not judged. Obviously, people that preach this do not want to be judged.
One judges each person’s character, and the effort and time one puts into it depends on that individual’s importance to you. You do not need to know much about the hot dog vendor other than he serves good, safe food at a price you’re willing to pay. You need to know more about the character of your co-workers and everything you can about the character of someone you’re going to marry.
One should judge objectively, putting aside one’s feelings, emotions or biases. Does this individual put reason above all else? Do they respect the facts of reality? Do they do what they say they’re going to do when they say they’re going to do it – do they do it well? Are they honest or do they lie, cheat or steal? What are their values and what values do you share?
The real tragedy of not being judgemental is not just failing to identify the people to avoid or condemn, but failing to identify the people that are good – people that you would want as part of your life – a new friend or a romantic relationship.
It may not always be wise to condemn bad character traits, but it is always a good thing to seek out, acknowledge and support good character traits.
