Judge Others Favorably!
In this week's Torah Portion, Kedoshim, G-d commands the Jewish people to be holy. To be holy means to be "separated" and "elevated" from our natural ways of behaving. One way to become holy is to judge others favorably. It's also a great way to avoid making mistakes!
- According to the Talmud, if you even suspect an innocent person of doing wrong, you must apologize and bless him!
- If a Jewish court unanimously convicted a person of murder, the person went free because no one judged him favorably!
- When the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson was a little boy, he asked his father, Rabbi Sholom DovBer, "Why do we have two eyes?"
His father replied, "We should always use the right eye to judge others favorably. We should always use the left eye to judge ourselves!"
Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
- What happens when you judge others favorably?
- In Heaven, you are judged the same way!
