Do not Judge!

I know what you're thinking: "It's easier said than done!"

Indeed, all of us are somehow born with invisible contact lenses that magnify the shortcomings of others while diminishing their strengths.

Here's one story that might help - the standard version (Judge Not) can be easily found via Google but here's my version - local style!

Judge Not (Singapore Version)

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
as I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the people in Heaven
who made me cannot tahan but complain -
the pirated DVD vendors, the rude drivers,
the illegal MP3 downloaders, Wi-Fi hijackers,

the shopoholics, the vain.


There stood the kid from primary school
who snatched my PSP twice.
Next to him was my old neighbour
who never said anything nice.

Mr I-got-5C-you-no-have, who I always thought
was being roasted in hell,
was relaxing in an OSIM uSpace,
on cloud nine, looking incredibly well.

I asked Jesus, "How come ah?"
Faster explain and justify too.
How did all these sinners get up here?
God must have made a boo-boo.

"And why everyone so quiet,
so serious? Got any hints?"
"Shh... child," said He, "they're all in shock.
No one thought they'd be seeing you."

JUDGE NOT.

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." (Matthew 7:1-2)
