A Tree in a Forest

Many of us make the mistake of judging others based on our individual belief system. We are but a tree in the forest, and our view is only as that tree, not as the whole forest. With Grace maybe our perspective eventually expands to one that encompasses more of the forest, possibly even the whole forest, but for now, our view is limited. Most of us cannot even make an accurate assessment of ourselves, for God sees each of us in a completely different way than we judge ourselves. Knowing that we do not have the perspective nor the capability of judging others brings you to humility, and humility is of God. When you are humble, you truly can help others, because you are not coming from a space of judgment.
