I was going through my Facebook news-feed, and this girl that I don't know put something incredibly rude for her status. She basically stated that she was sick of seeing other statuses about what she called "mediocre" college acceptances that her cat could get into, and that the person shouldn't be proud since it's not success at all. I named this post judgment because after reading this, of course I judged and considered her rude, among other things. It makes me wonder about how much we actually judge others, whether they deserve it or not.
Yes, what she posted was incredibly rude and offending, but are we right when we judge her? It makes me think of Matthew 7:1. How many times have I been judgmental or rude? All you can really do is pray and hope you don't do the same thing and that she learns to not be rude to others.
On a side note, I think I was so offended because one of the "mediocre" colleges she mentioned in the comments is the college I go to. One of the main reasons I go there? Money. I can't afford Harvard or any other fancy college. I feel blessed to able to even go to college.
What are your thoughts on judgment and college? If you go to a less prestigious school, do you feel like some people have judged you for going there? Do you judge people who judge others?
