Our propensity to judge others rarely accounts for the fact that we’re all a work in progress.

When we prejudge others, we ignore the reality that people and ideas evolve over the course of time.

Our perceptions and understanding about each other and the matters of life are imperfect and incomplete, because we’re limited by our senses in this physical world.

Points of view that are vastly different from our own perplex us and breed condescension.

We mistakenly assume that difference or distinctiveness equates to a lack of knowledge or understanding.

When in essence, what is more likely is we don’t yet see clearly or perfectly because we are works in progress.

We have not yet matured to a point where we truly see and perceive with great clarity.

The confluence of our experiences, personalities, beliefs, and values account for our incomplete and imperfect vision and insight about life.

Ultimately though, what we can only know partially now will fade, when we see Him face to face.


“Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.” (1 Corinthians 13:12, NLT)
