Day 6 - Judge not.

December 1 thru December 25 I am posting about movies which reflect each day's focus for #LightTheWorld.

Day 6

"Judge not, that ye be not judged." (Matthew 7:1)

There's a phrase, "If you must judge someone, judge on the side of mercy." We should give people the benefit of the doubt. The classic film, 12 Angry Men (1957) carries that message.

I reviewed the movie in an earlier post (click here) and stated, "Juror #8 (Henry Fonda) does not claim the defendant is innocent, but insists there is reasonable doubt to his guilt. One person giving someone the benefit of the doubt can go a long way."

(This is another film listed in 33 Movies To Restore Your Faith in Humanity by Roger Ebert.)

Today I will apologize to a person I misjudged.

Can you share about a time you misjudged someone? 

(Please be patient with the word verification process to post comments. I recently added that extra step due to spam.)
