Your job is not to judge.
Your job is not to figure out if someone deserves something.
Your job is to lift the fallen, to restore the broken and to heal the hurting.

Your job is not to judge.... Oh, I know, you don't do that. Really, is that true? Have you ever commented negatively on a style of clothing, or body piercing, tattoos, hairstyle? We all know that you can't judge a book by its cover, and simply looking at someone cannot give you any indication of their character. There appears to be something derogatory to say about everyone and everything.  Snap judgements are made constantly by outward appearance alone, that have no basis whatsoever in fact.

Judgement is a learned response, just as any kind of intolerance; you are not born with this inclination. What you need to do is recognize the tendency and try to avoid voicing your opinion. Although the most damaging, to you, is having the thought in the first place. You are what you think. No one is superior to anyone else. No one has the right to judge someone's appearance, behaviour or choices in life. 

Deciding that someone does or does not deserve something is another attack on their character. It is simply not up to you, you don't know, you cannot decide if someone is worthy. This is another instance of tending to your own business and not worrying about what others are doing, it is not up to you.

There are many other ways to express yourself that will benefit you and anyone you come in contact with. BE KIND. You have a message, you can be an example, you can lift, restore and heal.

Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are
