He looked beyond

There she goes; the girl who dated and slept with every man in trousers.

There he goes too; that good for nothing boy who chased after everything in skirts.

There they go; the home wreckers, the womanizers, the cheats, the liars, the good for nothing.

Your character gave you a tag.

They gave you a tag because they saw the manifestation of your molding phase.

They saw the clay and the mudding water on you.

They didn’t see the potter working on you

Neither did they see the potter’s plan.

They didn’t see the black magic that was used on him to make him chase women around like a dog.

They didn’t see the pretence she has to put up just so she can collect her school fees, business capital or receive a recruitment pass from a man old enough to be her grandfather.

They didn’t see how the young man she dated, respected and trusted; abused, mistreated and betrayed her, leaving her with a sense of nothingness, broken beyond physical repair.

They did see how the young lady he dated abused, disrespected and squandered his money. NO,they didn’t see that.

They didn’t see pass her makeup to know that she is broken, that she is a strong woman by day who weeps every other night.

Half the time, society is quick to judge people without taking into consideration  reasons for people’s wrong desires.

We judge too soon without giving people the chance for explanation.

But God in His infinite wisdom knows all things and sees beyond the situation.He is the potter who is patience with us in our molding phase.

He looks beyond.

Thank you for reading.

  1. Hi Mercy, just the other day I was talking to my students about how we can never know someone else’s pain just by looking on the surface, therefore we shouldn’t be so quick to pass judgement. My students had a lively discussion about what it means to be silent and just listen to another person tell their own story, their own life through their eyes. Your words here have captured exactly what I was teaching-not to judge others so quickly and to be compassionate.

    1. Wow Jenny,thank you very much for taking time to read my post and sharing what you thought your students on not judging others too quickly and compassion.I appreciate it.
